An end view of Grand River Railway car 842 sitting at the GRR - LE&N Galt Main Street station (Mile zero for both GRR and LE&N), during a stopover on a fantrip. Fantrip members can be seen getting their photos of the car from the station platform. The Galt Main Street Station was mile zero for both the LE&N and the GRR. The rails on the far right are the CN Fergus Sub, with a boxcar visible spotted in the Newlands factory building.

  1. find it interesting the parallel of the fellow on the station platform and today – It almost seems he’s checking his digital camera, when in fact he’s probably checking his light meter. Great photo of a bygone operation!
