  1. Interestingly enough grain is transloaded from hoppers to containers at that facility I believe, it is called Ray-Mont Logistics. A very busy customer.

  2. Lots of interest in one photo.
    CN MOW truck.
    Elderly government grain car.
    Are the containers moved to the port by truck or is there a local train movement for them?
    Tres Bien indeed!

  3. Larry, those are Hudson Ballasters manufactured by Hudson ROI Equipment in Hawkesbury. Different versions of this type of ballast cart are manufactured by a variety of MoW manufacturers.

  4. Interesting ballast cars. Never seen them before.
    You’ve captured a ton in the one photo, trés bien. :-)
