Having relocated from St. Thomas to Waterloo earlier in the 2007, the Southern Ontario Locomotive Restoration Society (SOLRS) initially ran excursions between Waterloo and St. Jacobs. The group brings their pride and joy, former Essex Terminal Railway 0-6-0 No. 9 out for special occasions a number of times a year. The Oktoberfest weekend is one of them. In this image the old steamer has some of the locals curiosity at the former Waterloo-St. Jacobs replica station in Waterloo as volunteers prep her for another trip north to the Farmers Market. Number 9 would not be able to make the trip due to a hot journal and would remain in Waterloo. As of 2022 things have changed significantly. While the replica station still stands, installation of double track, catenary lines and a fence for the ION LRT have now forever changed this scene. Waterloo Central is based out of St. Jacobs and runs along CN's Waterloo Spur between Northfield Drive (where the ION branches off the Waterloo Spur's right-of-way) to Elmira.
