The only RR industry left in my town. Trucks come in from the hinterland, then unload the wood onto the cars which then CBNS picks-up and gives to CN who in return pass them onto another shortline. The cars used in the operation are CN, WC, IC and NBSR.

Bought by CBNS shortline from a scrap yard in 1997, this old rusty car is part of its 3 caboose fleet (all ex-CN). The other two have been painted, and look much more better though.
