11/26/19 CN Train Q108 Farewell Detour Trains!
Author: ngfan

11/26/19 10:15 33 degrees as CN 3004, plus DPU CN 2848 power Train 108 over the MP 202 curve in Charlotte, Michigan. Train is 153 cars 9917 feet long today. Full 3:30 HD video included. With the tentative agreement in Canada between CN and labor this train could be one of the last intermodals running via Chicago that we will see here. For the last week it's almost been one right after the other on the Flint Sub.

153 cars and only 2 locomotives; the boxes were all empty, I take it? What was the tentative labor agreement that will reduce traffic on the Flint Sub? Thanks for the video.

Your are welcome.  During the strike CN detoured intermodals from the route over the top of a Lake Superior via Chicago since there weren't enough managers to crew them all. With the settlement all these extra trains will return to their original route in the next day or so.

I always wonder why railroads mix empties and loads stacks throughout the train. Seem to be safer to put all the baretables at the end of the train.
