  1. Admiring this one again as it showed up on the Favourites banner. Are these potash trains the heaviest regular moves on CN ? They run 205 car versions to St John NB as well.

  2. They are among the heaviest. We run coal trains at 220 cars out west that weigh in around 32000 tons. The 205 car potash trains weigh about 29500-30000 tons. A 200 car sand train weighs around the same as well, which are frequently run between Winnipeg and Swan Landing, AB.

  3. Thanks for that very interesting info Tim.
