  1. Ahh Ridgetown.. I can’t for the life of me wonder why CN didn’t add Ridgetown to the Blenheim ‘shortline’ and just let it go as they did… a real shame really. There were good customers down that way.

  2. Unbelievable how times can change! Great capture, thanks for sharing Larry.

  3. CN took them west usually a few at a time but I can remember them going all at once pulled by a couple CN GP40′s

  4. Pretty sure the CP potash ended up at Ridgetown but I don’t know which railway moved it there.

    Interesting shot mostly all CN rolling stock in that yard!

  5. Wow!
    Hard to imagine that yard ever that busy.

  6. Interesting – how often did these potash moves run and who took them west?
