Waterloo Central Railway Excursion

Yes, I know. Another photo album. Sorry. However, there shouldn't be any more for a while. Anywaaaaaay, my dad kindly arranged this fantastic excursion last weekend. Throughout much of the year, the Waterloo Central Railway offers historic railway trips (using restored locomotives, passenger cars and cabooses) within the Waterloo Region. Bright and early last Saturday, four of us piled into my dad's car for a trip from Waterloo to St. Jacobs.
