  1. There is TOFC and then what appears to be a reefer right up front. What that where the high priority traffic was placed?

  2. Yes that is a mechanical reefer in the 235000 series. TOFC and high priority freight was marshalled on the head or tail end of trains at the time. Thanks for the comment.

  3. Some nice Imperial Roadways “Puptainer Service” piggyback trailers there too!

  4. When I first started on CN I was forced on the east tower 3 relief job that worked the A yard once a week (the other 4 shifts on the hump) and built the express train that was ordered typically just after midnight. The last move after the train was built was to nip down to the stock yards and pickup the steers or pigs that were ready to go and tack them on the headend of the train.

  5. Thanks Larry

    I can remember heading east out of Capreol on train 202, which was all passenger type express cars (boxes, baggage and containers), and just before we tied on to the train, the yard job tacked on 6 cars of live stock. I suppose it was a different kind of priority traffic.
