I finally got a shot at getting this BNSF 2090 leading from the Jones Baseline Bridge. It always seems to elude my short period of time I'm in Guelph to pick up my grandson. Today, I was in early and shot other locals and decided to head to the Watson Road crossing and wait a bit. GO 362 got a clearance through a foreman and then CN 540 got the same clearance a few minutes later so I took off for the Baseline bridge and waited it out. The giant Bell wire hanging on this side of the bridge is quite the obstacle so I had to kneel on the road to shoot under the railing and under the wire with cars, trucks and tractors driving by. But, it finally showed up with about 10 minutes to spare. BNSF 2090 heads west with a small string of empty lumber cars headed to the siding at Guelph Junction to wait out another GO.
