On my way into work a surprise finding both L542 and L540 by Alma St in Guelph first thing in the morning and both with matching GP9's. It's just before 0800 and 540 (7071) is on the mainline, about to revere out of the way so 542 (7025) can get into the yard and both trains will exchange cars - and an engine: 4790 donated from 540 to 542. I've never seen 540 in Guelph this early since as they usually come from Kitchener. 542 usually arrives by the crack of dawn though from Galt when they start there.

It's just before 0800 and 540 (7071) is on the mainline, about to reverse out of the way into XW12 then into XV yard. 542 (7025) has to take a couple switches in hand to cross over to follow 540, and both trains will head into XV yard and exchange cars - and an engine: 4790 donated from 540 to 542.
