With only the lack of snow suggesting that springtime has arrived, the loaded Saskatchewan to New Brunswick potash unit train rolls through Lovekin on a sunny Saturday. Powered by four units - CN 2818 and 3118 up front, 2958 as mid-train DPU, and 2812 on the rear - this is certainly one of the heaviest trains on CN right now (in this part of Canada anyway).

  1. Nice catch with the Potash Corp cars up front. This train was 30118 tons including the power, which is very close to the heaviest train CN runs system wide. Yesterday there was a 213 car loaded coal train through Jasper with 3 units that weighed in slightly heavier than this potash train at 30731 tons. It’s quite rare to have a coal train of this size, while the potash trains are a regular thing.
