CN likes the 3x1 setup. Anyone know if there is a C-DKMNWE0-04 on the radar screen yet? Friday and Saturday are forecast to have sun, might be a chance for some good pictures.

The 3x1 lashup is what CP requires for the Cascade Sub in their operating practise.CN can run the coal trains 2x1 up the Yale Sub and they ran it 1x1 from Terrace into Ridley Island

Now that the third DKMNWE has departed Auburn (this morning), what's on the radar screen? Are there any more on the lineup? There is a string of loaded BNBX gons at Auburn right now, is this the fourth DKMNWE? Anything CN coming down this way?

a southbound empty coal led by CN 8919 is sitting at king street at 9:30 am waiting for a signal to proceed south.

CN 8919 South went through Kent at 1:17 PM headed for Auburn under typical Northwest gloomy skies. I missed getting the other three engine numbers. Did anyone else catch what they were?

So was this the first load coming back or the second? About 4 days ago Jason mentioned the E NWEDKM0 02A was supposed to come down yesterday evening and go over Stampede last night. Is this that train or have we missed one empty?

I caught the 2-21 train going through Seattle.

Wow, unless my eyes trick me those are actually nice clean CN locomotives. I didn't think CN had any clean... well anything. I wonder what BNSF had to put in the contract to get clean engines sent down. They do look good though.

With this much influence maybe BNSF could also get CN to kill some of those trees, I mean weeds that seem to grow between the rails on most CN tracks.

I caught the power at Auburn the day after Brian got his shot of the train going through Kent. All of the CN power I've seen on these trains has been fairly clean.
