CN 439 prepares to drop 21 cars in Chatham Yard on their way to Windsor via the CASO, only a couple of weeks before they switched over to the Chatham Sub. Most of the cars were BLE open top hoppers, I'm not sure what they were for but they were around Chatham from time to time during this period.

  1. They do use it sometimes during 514′s run too. For example, I have seen them drop potash traffic for Thamesville in the C&O yard before going to Blenheim, then lift it when they get back (here is an example in October 2019 as noted in my first comment on this post: http://www.railpictures.ca/?attachment_id=39142)

  2. Last time I personally saw cars sitting in it was May 12, 2018. There were quite a few potash hoppers sitting in it that morning.

    In Fall 2019 they built a pad next to the yard and 514 moved a transformer there that was offloaded for the transformer station on the opposite side of Maple Leaf Drive. The pad is still there of course.

  3. Nicely done. The yard is in rough shape now, not sure it sees much use..
