Aside from moving grain, lumber & tanker/hopper storage throughout the line (elevator sidings are literally packed to the max), CTRW utilizes the giant Prince Albert roundhouse for repair work to the many boxcars they wrecked on the Meadow Lake line. This is the last roundhouse built in Canada (1954).

As you can tell by the weeds on the door & ladder this boxcar went for a swim. Interestingly the roof is slightly bent & theres a hole in the side, possibly a result of a drawbar bar going through.
If you like PA Derelicts... You got another thing coming!
I was in PA on April 14th, 2009 - this boxcar still sitting there with no work done on it.
I know, they have the materials to work, all the roof parts are sitting next to the roundhouse. I went out the other day to do some pics for a hi-cube model I'm working on and nothing has been done to any of them.
