  4. Home from work

    Home from work

    CN 520 apparently didn't have anything to bring back from Clavet, so he ran to the yard light. CN 4703 was on the point, with 4796 and 4782. And yet, no caboose!
  5. Power hour

    Power hour

    The city of Saskatoon is located in potash country, meaning unit potash trains, and subsequent light power moves from the mines to the city, are a common site. Whenever possible CP likes to tag the potash power onto a manifest, in addition to wayfreight power (typycilally Geeps) which work grain...

    ONR IMS on CN Rivers sub

    CN & ONR have a power sharing agreement, whereby CN gives them power for heavy coal trains, ONR in turn gives back whenever it can spare (or something close). Normally their units are capped in Northern Ontario, here however their newest power is taking an Intermodal out West! ONR 2105 is...
