On the west end of Moose Jaw, visible in this shot of the west end of the yard, is the Viterra terminal. On this morning, K39 with the 6254 solo, lifted about 70 or so loads. They did this in two trips - in the first trip they lifted about 40+ hoppers and took them into the yard, and in the second visit to Viterra they pulled 30 cars out. They did the second batch in two trips, setting the first set of loads on the north track of the main before going back to get the rest and then doubling up on the main to head back to the yard. It's a decent grade from Viterra up to the main and they put on a good show in the process.

  1. There very well could, CP was just pulling the already loaded hoppers out on the main of the Swift Current Sub and then back to the yard.

  2. Surprised they don’t have their own engine. What could be inside that rollup door ??
