The CN 0700 Yard Job with a dimensional load from Hooper in the Eastport area. These moves happen only a couple of times a year as far as I know, and are typically handled under darkness by the 1600 Yard Job. Aside from empties going in on the 1600, this is the first pull from Hooper I've ever seen. At the time of the photo, the load was stuck against the fence of the adjacent scrap yard.

  1. The concrete barricades are a recent addition, and I am wondering if they came about as a result of this incident: https://www.chch.com/hamilton-driver-unharmed-after-vehicle-struck-by-train/

  2. Neat load! Great stuff.

  3. Thanks Steve. Was cool to finally see one.

  4. There is a six foot piece of sheet piling laying on the ground today.

  5. Thanks for the report from the scene, Terry. I wasn’t able to get back to see how they managed to proceed.
