CN 840

2:20pm CN 840, 83 hoppers
CN 5773-BCOL 752

He's waiting for a yellow @ Riverview, to follow 346, with 347 + MP188 yard switcher waiting to head West.

Normally I'm not too exited about unit grain trains, as long as they're not hauling junk up front. But add a BCOL SD40-2 and it makes all the difference. He must be doing lifting online, since grain trains are normally much longer - I've heard 200 car monsters (two trains doubling up) here in town. Doesn't suprise me, back in Winnipeg one poor SD40-2 (CN 5370) handled 115 hoppers solo on the Letellier sub. Sadly I didn't take car counts back then, as I'm sure I've seen more impressive consists.
