When I was waiting for CN 532 to arrive on Friday, I noticed a few flatcars up the line from where I parked. I walked up and found this company, CG Power Systems Canada makes distribution and power transformers. Some of those are very large, and many of them would ship by rail. QTTX 130532 is a depressed-center flatcar specially designed for shipping loads like these.
Interesting as that was, there was another, even larger flatcar there.
This car is owned by Kasgro Rail Lines, and has a load limit of 200,000 lbs. More information on KRL 300301.
This company has two spur tracks at around mile 0.6 on the Letellier Subdivision, just south of Fort Rouge. I had no idea there were any online industries on the Letellier sub inside Winnipeg, other than the ones around Chevrier. You learn something new every day!
