Previously the longest I saw on this track was 190 cars, 12-28-2014 (longest I ever saw was on NS near Delta, OH with 208 cars in 2017)!!!! This train cleared Masonic Road, Fraser, around 5:11 p.m. OK, please tell me the "Two posts" per page is a joke! NOT CSX!!!!

They ran a G846 out of Durand to Quebec around 10:00 PM last night. 3 units. CN/BC Rail/CN

This was the grain bang of 104 cars that HESR brought down a week ago.
