Running longer trains is not all positives, especially when they're loaded. CN 421 is no exception, being over 150 cars in length, with a good chunk of it being heavy scrap metal. When this massive freight went through the notorious Jordan dip, in train forces sheared apart two knuckles. After about two and a half hours, 421 is on the move again. 422, it's largely empty counterpart, is passing by on the north track with ease, meanwhile 421 is barely making double digits on the speedometer. 422 is taking a pair of geeps from Port Robinson, and 421 is taking another pair to Port Robinson to replace those. Every unit was online, and powered at notch 8, which made for some tasty diesel smoke, especially from the geeps. It appears 5743 picked up a nice weed along the way, which appears to be wedged in the door.

  1. One of my shots does too. I decided not to use that one though, as it was a pretty wicked distraction.
