CN 2442 runs full power as it heads up the Dundas sub at mile one hauling 388 axles of 3085mm pipe. There was plenty of chatter on the radio on needing pushers to get it up the grade in to Copetown and it indeed was true as it stalled out at mile 9.5.

  1. There was no pushers at this point. It started to spit so I left

  2. 2442 had a traction motor catch fire somewhere around Copetown. L580 is currently awaiting the heavy repair department to clear them to proceed to the south service in Paris

  3. 247 stalled this morning as well, even with pushers on. Apparently they had to back up, put the third pusher online, and try again.

  4. Great. Shoot the pushers???
