By this date the CN roadrailer trailers had been transferred to NS’ Triple Crown operation. It was a neat train to catch either way but unfortunately the age of the trailers finally caught up with them and they were pulled off the road a few years later. Here a line SD40 does the honours at mile 30 of the Halton subdivision.

  1. Cool …love the Triple Crown

  2. I only had a chance to operate the Roadrailers going east to Montreal. The train crews met halfway between Toronto and Montreal and changed crews so each crew ended up in their home terminal. The train was easy to operate but the brakes sucked when it came to stopping, still it was a fun train to run

  3. Marcus these weren’t pulled from Canada until around 2015. And even still, they still operate from Detroit to Kansas City as far as I know, so while not as extensive, they are still operating, or at least they were. When visiting Altoona I’d still sometimes see it after they were pulled from Canada.

  4. True I know of one route in the states still using them and the former CN trailers should be a fair bit younger the the NS older ones.
