Caption: 76 years old and still earning its keep 1938 built GEXR 55413, Work Plow 3821 is on the Guelph Subdivision shown at a leisurely 40 MPH (Track speed is 60 MPH) - and the second plow extra I managed to shoot on the same day. Earlier that morning I photographed a CP Plow on OSR: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=12916

  1. You guys had a good day for chasing the plow, ah if I only knew last night! Great shots!

  2. This is so friggan nice, I hate you :)

  3. On this trip I had heard GEXR ran a plow the night before, so when I went home after chasing OSR’s plow I went via Stratford, I was lucky enough to find the plow returning, with a crew, waiting for 85 to clear and after 85 passed they took the switch @ Cowie in hand, lined it for the main and ran west to London. Just pure dumb luck and of course I went out of town for a track speed shot. Even luckier is this track has been downgraded so they don’t run faster than 25 anymore..
