Crew has just come on duty at home terminal of Leader and will build a train for the CP interchange at Swift Current. Traffic consists of grain from various points between Leader and Swift Current and also propane from a gas plant south of Leader. This line once ran from Bassano through to Speedy Creek and hosted the fast livestock train instead of via Medicine Hat. Originally main traffic was home heating coal from Drumheller area to South Saskatchewan
