    Just wondering if any Gauge members have ridden on the Waterloo Central Railway and how they liked it. Based on their website and their videos, it looks like quite a very scenic route. They have an 0-6-0 steamer :mrgreen: and a 1940s diesel switcher.

    FYI, my family and I rode behind this steam loco #9 in 2004 when it was based in St. Thomas. When CN removed the CASO line, this railway operation had to find a new location, which turned out to be Waterloo/St. Jacob's.

    At any rate, we're hoping to ride this train on Canada Day (July 1) after we've just returned from holidays up north. I'll try to take some pics!

    I think the steamer is out of commission right now...

    My family & I actually rode on this train yesterday (Canada Day) and it was excellent. I hope to post pics and a description of it over the next few days, when I get time! Rob
