CP train #235 sits quietly between St. Joachim and Haycroft, Ontario on June 30, 2020.  Due to issues at the Norfolk Southern Bridge over the Rouge River in Detroit, all traffic to/from the CP/NS has been stopped all day.  235 sits here with 10K feet of train while a 141 sits in Windsor ahead of him with 9100 feet of train.  With no place to go where they will fit, all they can do is sit.  Also in the mix is a 140 on the U.S. side, west of NS Bridge, with CP 7016 and mid-train DPU 6644.  Just another day of "Precision Railroading" on the CP in 2020!!!

  1. Hey Geoff, love your caption, and very nice picture ! Precision railroading at its best ! Ha, ha !! Hunter Harrison never really considered the back up nightmares when track became blocked. Amazing that a problem at a bridge way across the US border backs up trains way outside Windsor. By the way, with these parked monster trains, what do they about blocked level crossings ? They should go back to 50 car trains with one locomotive and then you can park in the Windsor Yard, and the crew can book off at a terminal instead of way out in an alpha field. And no blocked level crossings. So how did this all “un wind” ? Happy Canada Day !
