Sane here, CRD!

Does CN handle any coal/coke? In the picture with the BCR unit they have open top hoppers and I'm wondering where those are from.

383 runs from Toronto to CSX Walbridge in Toledo. The coke hoppers could be set off at Lang Yard to interchange to the Wheeling, or handed over to CSX.
