M303's train passes Mile 220 on CN's Edson Sub and begins to slow for 10mph speed restriction at Mile 224 due to a broken angle bar. This power would get a spin on the wye at Jasper, for multiple issues with the lead unit - much to the chagrin of the local trainmaster!

  1. That would explain the higher than normal load height. Thanks.

  2. Hi Dave. It’s actually coke from either Fort McMurray or Lloydminster heading to Prince Rupert.

  3. Interesting how managers that rarely ride the trains have such issues with the comforts of those that do. At the rate that CN moves trains, is 30 minutes to get a decent leader really a big deal? Out of curiosity, is that a big block of coal on the head end?
