Battle Creek, MI Question
Author: PRR_4859

Does CN still maintain a mainline fuel pad at Battle Creek, MI? Are there any other facilities there(car shop, locomotive service truck, etc)?

Thank you in advance.

Nope.   Any refueling is done by truck.   If engine work is needed MofE will come down from Flint for basic items.    A small carshop is still open though.

How far is Flint from Battle Creek? Do all through trains refuel there? Does CN have any mainline f ih el pads in the United States?

Thank you again.

By car its a solid 2 hours Northeast.   I cant speak for the fuel pads, but everything over here is done by truck now.  Chicago might still have a pad.

Kirk Yard (Gary IN) has a fuel pad.

When did they close the fuel pad? It's been several years since I've been by the yard, but I thought it was still in operation the last time I was in BC.
