Emerging out of the darkness at Guelph, Ont., CN's Wisconsin Central heritage locomotive trundles over the historic downtown trestle with Kitchener-bound train no. 533 in tow. Affectionately known by locals as "Allan's Bridge", this photogenic structure has been a landmark of the Royal City since it was originally constructed by the Grand Trunk Railway in 1856. Today, extensive work has been done by Metrolinx to allow for increased speeds and future double-tracking. The track in the foreground is the Guelph Junction Railway (former CPR).
