TK22 has worked west to Woodstock and is not yet clear of the Galt Sub mainline Toyota Spur Switch Pender  - with  recently re-painted (Thankfully) 3057 in the lead. This spur and yard were constructed in 2008 for the new assembly plant and re-used some of the former Galt sub alignment (bridge over the river). Around 1960 a dam was constructed, creating a man made lake and the enlargement of the riverbank caused the Galt sub to be re-aligned between here and the Station. If you look on the Google map below - you can make out some of the ROW. Bonus: Can you find the ex CNR Hickson Sub right of way? (Ran to Tavistock - a small segment still exists but is now disconnected from the CPR just east of the Station)

Caption: TK22 has worked west to Woodstock and is not yet clear of the Galt Sub mainline Toyota Spur Switch Pender - with recently re-painted (Thankfully) 3057 in the lead. This spur and yard were constructed in 2008 for the new assembly plant and re-used some of the former Galt sub alignment (bridge over the river). Between 1964-7 the Pittock dam was constructed, creating a man made lake and the enlargement of the riverbank caused the Galt sub to be re-aligned between here and the Station.
