Many readers will understand the usual meaning of TOFC - Trailers On Flat Cars. On the 8th I saw a different kind.
I was out and about in Winnipeg in the morning. First I saw CN 532 head south on the Letellier. I think the lead unit was CN 8927 but I could be wrong. Later, I saw a CN intermodal train roll west into Transcona. I didn't see the head end but it had a DPU and the engine on the end was CN 2533.
At the west end of Transcona, a CN intermodal was stopped, getting refueled by a tanker truck.
I went down to the south end of Symington and saw this very interesting sight.
There were twelve Leopard tanks and one engineering vehicle on the train. Tanks On Flat Cars!
They were on a train being shoved up the hump by CN 7513, among others. I assume / hope that these cars were cut out of the train and not sent over the hump! There was one engineering vehicle there too.
It was nice to see some of Canada's military together with my favourite hobby.
