    Here are a few more pictures from the same photo session: cn nutbar's loco and camera, my layout, with randomly selected fingers activating the shutter.

    Here's an aerial view, shot from Barney Secord's crop dusting 'plane, of the 4100 rolling through Port Maitland.

    Again from the 'plane, and from a typically reckless low altitude, the 4100 crosses over to the North main at the Lowbanks station

    This is a seldom-seen view of the 4100 crossing the Speed River bridge, in the land of unfinished scenery. This is still on the trackage of the Erie Northshore: the overhead span is part of the Grand Valley's north-south line between Dunnville and Mount Forest, on the as-yet-unbuilt second level. The car, seen just below the train, is on River Road.

    This final view is of the loco crawling through the brick canyons of Dunnville, on its way to West Dunn Yard (industrial staging/run-through track). This is part of the "Old Line", part of which is also seen in the third picture in the first post in this thread.
