My favourite engine on GEXR in the lead in winter - doesn't it look sharp? Normally a pair of four axles in the lead westbound often indicates a rescue/helper set, but it's not. On the 23'rd GEXR 432 ran to Mac Yard but did not make it out on time, crew taxi'ed back to Stratford. On the 24th GEXR ran 2303/3030 with a train as 432, again, they died at Mac Yard and taxi'ed back to Stratford. What you see is the combination of both sets of motive power and as much tonnage as they could carry on the one-way GEXR 431 on Boxing Day, after the Christmas break. I didn't know what would be leading this day, and was pleasantly surprised.

  1. Yes sir, I tend to go where the sounds are best – Limehouse, Acton, either side of Guelph due to slow orders.. always a good show on the GEXR.

  2. Look’s like it must have sounded pretty swell.
