This is an interesting train. At first glance, I thought that it was a potash empty returning to Saskatchewan. But upon further review, I think that it is a phosphate load destined for Sherritt, a fertilizer plant, in Fort Saskatchewan (20 KM's NE of Edmonton). Those CN hoppers are what suggests this conclusion. I seem to recall that potash always moves in Campotex cars. Furthermore, I think that these hoppers are too big to be the ones used to carry lime (or is it limestone) to Inland Cement in Edmonton.
I sure wish that I head the train designation.
