Detroit Sub CP's

Unread postby atrainguy60 » Thu Sep 21, 2017 12:34 pm

I was curious what CP train operations are like nowadays between Delray and Oak Yard on CSX. I believe I've heard that there are a pair of intermodals that run between Detroit and somewhere in East Canada, is that correct? Is there anything other CP's that run in and out of Oak Yard? Like a transfer job out of Windsor or something?

On CSX? I thought those ran on NS's Wabash line.

Good question. I've seen fairly recent pictures/videos of a CP 234 and CP 235 with intermodal going to/from Windsor through the tunnel, but I don't know if these trains still run, and if they do, whether or not they go to Oak Yard.

Don't worry about, no problem.

Oh yeah, those would be the two I was remembering.
