The Breslau bridge over the Grand River has been a popular (Glenn Courtney) |  spot (arnold mooney)  for photographers going back decades. It has also been a point of contention with a 10 (or so) MPH slow order going back about a decade or two. GEXR/Metrolinx started fixing the bridge up last year, and after adding some handrails to the east side, the handrails are all gone and the slow order is no more - to my and crews delight
Also, when was the last time GEXR 432/1 was all orange? I can still count on one hand how many times this has happened since G&W paint arrived. Back when winter was a thing, I made sure to get out there and get what I think is the best juxtaposition of G&W's scheme: Blue skies, white snow, and orange locomotives.

Here's a photo of mine from 2015 of GEXR  all yellow  with one of our favourite hoggers at the throttle.

Caption: The Breslau bridge over the Grand River has been a popular (Glenn Courtney) | spot (Arnold Mooney) for photographers going back decades. It has also been a point of contention with a slow order going back about a decade or two. GEXR/Metrolinx started fixing the bridge up last year, and after adding some handrails to the east side (leading to the east pier) the handrails are all gone and the slow order is no more - to my and crews delight. You can also see the result of the new construction on the east pier.

Also, when was the last time GEXR 432/1 was all orange? I can still count on one hand how many times this has happened since G&W paint arrived. Back when winter was a thing, I made sure to get out there and get what I think is the best juxtaposition of G&W's scheme: Blue skies, white snow, and orange locomotives.

Here's a photo of mine from 2015 of GEXR all yellow with one of our favourite hoggers at the throttle. Compare the piers in this shot.
