Thursday's VIA and a CN Train
I shot the Canadian at Waverley Street in Winnipeg on Thursday, July 15. It had 6419 and 6453 leading twenty cars.
They met an eastbound CN train heading the other way on the south track.
In between the two trains, the gates came up at Waverley and a few cars went through. One truck driver tried to run the lights and dragged the crossarm across the top of the box, bending it, before he made it through. Swift.
CN 8019 and 2663 led this intermodal train.
There was a DPU on this train, CN 8863, running flat out.
