The road leading to that crossing is primarily used by trucks and most likely will be less then adequate from what I’ve been told by a friend of mine that’s attempted To go back there before.

The road going out here is perfectly fine and paved all but the last 1000 or so, Now if you keep going south, go over the CN and keep going it turns into a two track swamp road. The photo is kinda blah but it’s a cool operation I think if I remember right it took about a hour and a half from the time the train passed, dumped and returned.
