    So here is the first sighting.

    Thanks for posting these.
    I really like those last two pictures. Besides the trains, they also show lots of interesting track detail. The difference between mainline and siding track, and that dirt crossing.
    In the second to last picture, there looks to be a concrete slab or foundation. Do you know what that is for or what used to be there?

    That used to be the Mile 10.5 grain elevator. Was torn down a few years ago. Makes for a nice platform to take pictures from.

    Is there some other industry on that siding? It does not look abandoned.

    no the switch is gone on the west end of the siding. The east side has the switch still. They stick MOW equipment there when they need to get freight past it.

    This wasn't from Sunday, but it is the GO Train on Burloak in Oakville, Ontario.
