Today's CN 532

CN 8843 in Winnipeg
I happened to catch CN 532 by the old Manitoba Sugar complex today at 12:30 PM. CN 8843 provided the sole power for a short train of 28 tank cars and grain cars.

The sugar plant was built in 1940 by the Manitoba Sugar Company to process sugar beets. It was acquired by BC Sugar in 1955, but was shut down in January 1997. That was the end of sugar production in Manitoba. The only beet sugar processing in Canada is done in Taber, Alberta.
