CN unit potash train number 730 curves through Whitby, Ontario, behind CN 2921 and 2809, with 3005 bringing up the rear. I don't know the exact tonnage or length of this monster, but it consisted of 151 loaded potash hoppers, which is not excessively long around these parts, but being in the 20,000 ton range would certainly qualify it as one of the heavier trains. 1329hrs.

  1. Nice one. There were supposed to be a pile of these trains running to Saint John, but they’ve appeared to have dried up. No more showing on the lineups or even planned. This particular train was 22218 tons, 7319′ long which includes the power.
