    Amazon's Unique Reporting Marks

    I was driving behind an Amazon trailer recently and noticed that the reporting mark was "AZNG". This seems strange to me since I believed all trailers had reporting marks that ended in the letter "Z". As for Amazon's containers, it appears they use "AZNU". This reporting mark ends in "U" like...

    CN TOFC 2008

    Not exactly a trailer, but its close a CN box on a chassis. A lot fewer TOFC's on the mainline compared to even a couple years back
  3. The Last Saskatchewan TOFC

    The Last Saskatchewan TOFC

    No doubt they are still around, but sadly they are not so common around here anymore. A strange fact, as the American lines see Trailers as a more important shipment than Stacks.

    Unknown railcar at Blosberg

    While waiting for a train at Blossberg, I happened to catch sight of this unusual tank-trailer-on-rails thing. My best guess is it is related to MoW in someway, but I'm not totaly sure.if you know otherwise, go ahead & tell me so I can make a more accurate description.
  5. CN semi

    CN semi

    CN's semi-truck fleet looks very similar to CPR's: white color with "CN" in red on the side. So why is this unit red? Because it's a MOW transporter, used to move tampers and other MOW equipment around on its trailer, that's conviniently wearing CN orange MOW...

  8. Circus trailer?

    Circus trailer?

    Caught him on a westbound intermodal. I really like the trailer, never seen anything like it. As it's small, has two doors and is very clean, I'm guessing its a circus trailer. I couldn't find a better category to post it under.

  10. CN 655-01

    CN 655-01

    Kind of looks like a European diesel, complete with a funky headlight! Aside from cranes & Rail grinders, still the biggest MOW single piece Ive seen to date. Note the two arrows on the body, indicating where the front is? Be odd to see that on locomotive frames instead of the usual F, R...
