Before changes near downtown Guelph, L533 is running along Kent St approaching the now closed Dublin St crossing. L533 makes the occasional daylight appearance after outlawing in Kitchener, but usually it's against the sun so a cloudy day like this is perfect. Five units on this L533, a C44, T4 GEVO, looks like another C44 and a pair of dash 9's including a cowl, but I stand to be corrected, I can't find my notes. The foliage downtown attracted me of course, as it has for a long time. Since this photo was taken a fence was added along the concrete barrier separating the road and railway, and the crossing signals are gone.

  1. A very nice scene Steve!

  2. Awesome man

  3. the power appears to be ES44/ES44/Repaint IC C40-8W/C40-8W/C40-8M, quite the variety!

  4. You always seem to shoot Kent St on Garbage day, haha. A small little detail I love, since all the garbage bins say “Guelph” on them. Very cool.

  5. Aha, so true. However, my GECX ex CSX Dash 8 leading (coming in the future) is not on garbage day.

    It’s a garbage day though, but that’s what you needed to shoot here most of the time under CN.

    GEXR was so damn perfect for photography, both ways…. LOL
