Well my six year old grandson graduated from his Fisher Price camera today to his new, (to him it is), Canon camera and this was his first train using it. Its just after 9am and the green light came on so through the field we went fully expecting the standard GO locomotive leading. The F59PH is a common sight (GO 562) at 8am but I have rarely saw one after. Around the bend came GO 564 and all I can hear is "Papa, an F59" and he was right. His photo turned out OK for his first shot so the learning curve has began. Now, every picture he takes I get the "is this rail pictures quality?" Hmmmm.

  1. Anyone have any idea why they dropped the second F59 unit? For what seemed like the first year plus of the London GO pilot, two F59s were up front. Thanks!

  2. This is great Bill! Thanks for sharing.
