A single GP9 easily handles its roadrailer train down the escarpment on its way to Lambton yard. Still one has to wonder why CP lost or gave up this train to CN.

  1. Very cool. I’m dissapointed this service is being discontinued. The final roadrailer on CN will pass through Georgetown, ON between 0800 and 1000 on Sat. Nov. 14, 2015.

  2. too short

  3. It was too shot a haul and never expanded beyond Lambton. Not very profitable. CP was glad to be rid of it.

  4. Darrell, as I recall it had something to do with the expansion of eXpressway service in the Toronto – Detroit lane. I don’t think I’ve seen a shot of an 8200 working the Roadrailer before… nice catch. CP.
