A dimensional movement of three transformers from ABB, two on flatcars, the third on schnabel car HEPX 200, crawl slowly through Guelph approaching Suffolk Street.  The site seen here used to have much more rail activity with the Guelph City Spur branching off towards the pine tree, customer Federal Wire & Cable Co, later Pirelli Cable off to the right, and an interchange connection with the Guelph Radial Railway at right on Suffolk Street before it was removed in 1929.  The Pirelli site is now a housing development, their parking area at left is now a park, and the City Spur was pulled up in 1972.

  1. Amazing how the foliage / trees are taking over the city. Makes you wonder what the 1990′s or earlier had against trees or tree canopies in town. It’s not like that neighbouhood was young then.. it would have been easily 30 to 50 years old
