A CN potash train derailed on the Rivers subdivision in Manitoba, near the border with Saskatchewan. Trains are now being diverted on the Prairie North line over the Gladstone and Togo subdivisions. Clayton Chaloner spotted CN 115 with CN 2288, 8857, 5506 and 156 cars (photo).
It was reported that there were 12 westbound trains lined up out of Dauphin this afternoon. The Canadian was being held in Winnipeg. Too bad... I wanted to see it as it had four deadhead cars on the head end.
I saw train 114 stopped at the Perimeter Highway west of Winnipeg. I believe they were held there because there was no room for them in Symington Yard. CN 2300 and 6003 were the power.
