BNSF Western Canadian Detours Continue
Author: LKeithR

The road I drive to and from work parallels the CN main for a few miles east of Fort Langley and tonight on my
way home I passed a westbound  BNSF grain train with two CN engines and two BNSF units.  Anyone have any
idea how much longer the detours will continue?  Is BN still having issues through Montana and Idaho?

You may have spotted the last BNSF detour on the CN. The last eastbound ran last week, while its westbound counterpart sat in Dauphin MB for 5 days account winter weather conditions and congestion (go figure!).

Ironic, eh?

What's also ironic is that, of all the detours, I've managed to see two--one
eastbound and one westbound--and in both cases I was driving in the opposite
direction and had no opportunity to get a picture (or even note the engine numbers)...
