Title: CN Transportation
Post by: Rob Archer on May 06, 2010, 02:01:22 AM
Train Fan Walter Pfefferle of Beachville Ontario shot this Mack and CN domestic container in nearby Woodstock. He shot it at the CP station!

Nice picture Walter!

Nice photo but that MACK just does not look good in that paint scheme , looks like it was in an accident and the hood was replaced and not yet painted black.

 CNS locomotive paint job looks good on a long nosed tractor and the ORANGE mirrors have to go

Walter Pfefferle found another "CN Truck" at the CP station in Woodstock this week, a Volvo.

I absolutely love this CN locomotive paint scheme. I hope it is OK to add a few that I took today. I see these trucks on the road all the time when I'm driving but never can take shots. Not often I have a day off (while a lot of people are working today) so I took advantage of the Canada Day weekend and in Canuck fashion caught these CN trucks. All were taken in 1 hour from hwy 176 north to the Fraser river where the Intermodal yard is. Sadly I missed a pair of great Peterbilts and a Western Star on the way up! Next time.

That's a neat variety of trucks you caught there!  The Volvo daycab is quite interesting, and the 386 looks great in that livery.
 Having that classic paint scheme put on trucks was a great initiative on CN's part.

Jim: Thanks for the contribution from Vancouver. Those are all excellent shots. I notice that their unit numbers all have a BV prefix. I assume that is an abbreviation for Broker from Vancouver.

Post by: JJG on July 03, 2010, 07:01:44 PM
Rob, you might be right there on the "BV", I noticed it on some of the shots as I viewed them after but good eye on your part. Do you have any "BT" in your region? I'll have to check the other postings. I have one more on Hank's in my collection and I see one did not load up for some reason. I'll go back and see what went wrong there.

    I have wanted to get some pictures of those trucks for a long time already, so nice to see I found a thread to "add" some more! Sounds to me like the paint scheme is either a "love it or hate it" deal, you know my take on it!!

Rob, here is the link to the T800 taken in Langley, if you can load it up from the link, feel free to do so!

When I do, I will exchange this photo, it really is a nice looking tractor and the CN livery looks fine on it!

Other than Cherry street being a bit rough not a bad location for a container operation.

All....

Checking in from the "Lower 48"... This C N effort looks like a good thing. From the
panel of photos here, it looks as if they are working past the "rough edges". Now,
does anyone care to explain the numbering plan? The first "B" must mean something.
The second "alpha" character apparently point of power domicile?

Resigned to the fact, likely we never, ever will see C N Green again. Though, that
whole "what if" has its own charms...

Title: Re: CN Transportation - Updated September 2010
Post by: Rob Archer on November 11, 2010, 01:00:17 PM
First "B" apparently for BROKER
Second Character:
M - Montreal
B - Brampton (The Toronto container terminal is B.I.T.- Brampton Intermodal Terminal which is, of course, located on Intermodal Drive.)
V - Vancouver.
I wouldn't be surprised to see BW and BE as well as Winnipeg and Edmonton are important inland terminals.

CN "Maple Leaf Green", Vern has not been used since the "WET NOODLE" logo was adopted around 1966.

I wouldn't mind to see CN using some heritage green the way UP did with some of its engines (MoPac, CNW green and yellow, SP daylight orange...). It would be awesome.

Also, to the list should we watch for BC (Chicago), BD (Detroit), BM 2.0 (Memphis), BM 3.0 (Mobile)... CN is really looking South and I never heard of similar painted trucks down South.

BC (Calgary - Sarcee Yard): Confirmed. I received pictures, but I wait for the ok to release them online.
BB (Brandon?): Reported to have been seen in Manitoba.

In that case, we can think of
BW (Winnipeg),
BE (Edmonton),
BS (Saskatoon, not...) and
BR (Regina).

Good point, I didn't made the link between Brampton and the info I got. Also, It makes much more sense, because I never heard of a major CN presence in Brandon, nor Regina. Both are definetely CP backyard. I am not sure to understand why a railroad would ship a can from Brampton to Manitoba (about 24 hrs drive) by truck while they can use their own rails for much less, but in the case of Brandon, Regina and Southern Sask., it really makes sense to be served out of Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary and even Edmonton.

 I have somewhat more than a passing association with CN Intermodal. I was pulling piggyback tailers into the Bathhurst and Mimico rail yards when they started closing the ramps around Ontario in anticipation of the opening of the Brampton Intermodal Terminal.
 Being a part of the CNTL group, CTL was given the job of hauling the trailers in from the various terminals, and I was the first driver on the job.
 Guelph was the first ramp to close, followed by London, Belleville etc.
 These shots were taken at the Guelph terminal in 1979. The truck was my 1977 W series.

Bathurst and Mimico; those are "blasts from the past".
Wasn't Bathurst actually a CN Express yard and Mimico was the main freight yard for Toronto until they moved to Concord - which was WAYYY out of the city in those days.

I think it was CN express at Bathurst! I've been inside the Concord yard! One of the most interesting places I've been to my whole life!! Nice selection of reefers, CN trucks, intermodel, and steel haulers delivered their loads there. But the MOST interesting thing I think to watch in there was how they built the road railer trains! God I wish I had photographed action in those days. I never go there anymore but someday I hope to go there someday!
Title: Re: CN Transportation
Post by: Dan Burkhart on January 16, 2011, 11:32:51 AM
To be honest, I don't remember much about those two yards, other than west bound loads went to Mimico, eatbound to Bathurst.
 No security gates in those days. If you picked up an empty trailer at the Bathurst yard, you'd have to check the inside to be sure there wasn't sombody sleeping inside it.

I don't remember exactly when they put the security gate in at Concord, but I know it wasn't there in 78 when I first started going in there.
 I personally never found any bums in the trailers at Bathust, but my ex wife did.
 We used to run the truck around the clock between the two of us, and she used to run the night shift.
 I heard some other drivers say they found occupied trailers there as well.

Dan: I'm enjoying these memories of 30 odd years ago.
You said that CN closed intermodal ramps at London and Belleville in favour of Brampton?
Both those points are major yards for CN trains. I believe they are both crew change points for trains from Toronto.
There was a big terminal in Hamilton down by Stuart Street.
I saw it about three years ago and there was a GTL Glengarry sign still on it.
By last March, though, it had been razed.
I believe it might have been a CN Express terminal before GTL moved in.

The terminals remained open, they just stopped ramping the piggyback trailers. For the first year or so, they still had local drivers doing the p&d at the terminals, but they gradually went to a load and go system, and ultimately, we did all p&d out of Brampton all over Ontario.
 Guelph kept one local driver on though, to pull out of Imperial tobacco. They kept pretty close control on those loads. The CN police were notified any time one was moving, and we were to go non stop to the rail yard.
 Same applied to booze loads, but we picked those up at the distilleries.

 Now that I'm caught up in a reverie of years long past, I'll talk a bit about the piggyback trailers that CN had.
 About the time I started pulling them around, they had a big push on to renew and upsize the fleet, but they still had lots and lots of old trailers that predated CMVSS121. That meant no spring brakes of course, but that was nothing new to me, I hadn't seen many spring brake trailers before that anyway.
 When they put a trailer on the train car, the brakes need to be released for travel to allow them to roll freely for the little bit of motion allowed by the support column. This was so the bearings wouldn't get flat spots, or at least that's the reason as explained to me.
 The new spring brake trailers were built with extra reservoir capacity, and a release button, so that the brakes could be released when disconnected from the power unit. The older trailers, they just opened the tap on the reservoir and let the air out.
 The reservoirs were not easilly accessible on a lot of the old units, and this was particularly true of the old wide frame rack and tarp flatbeds.
 In those days, east bound freight from western Canada to Ontario was scarce, and they would put any freight they could find on those trailers to load them eastbound.
 So, what do they have lots of in western Canada? Slaughter houses, and they generate hides.They would load green salted stinking dripping hides on those things and we'd have to pick them up and deliver them to the leather factories in Kitchener, Acton and Hastings. Bad enough having to duck under the trailer to close the air valve before connecting so you wouldn't chase the trailer all over the yard, but these trailers almost always needed a brake adjustment before they were safe to move, because nobody else, it seems, owned a 9/16ths wrench.
 Well, most times, I would just get under the trailer and make adjustments, but with that goo dripping down, I said no thanks. I'd always run them over to the shop and let the mechanics deal with it.
 Anyway, sorry to get so long winded. I'm just sitting around with nothing to do for a while. Hope I bring back some memories for some of you guys.

No Strike At CN
(January 25 2011)
CN reaches tentative contract settlements
with Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union

CAW cancels plans for CN strike on Jan. 25, 2011

MONTREAL, Jan. 24, 2011 CN (TSX: CNR)(NYSE: CNI) announced today tentative contract agreements with the Canadian Auto Workers (CAW) union. With settlements, the CAW has dropped plans to strike the railway at 0001 hours Eastern time Jan. 25, 2011.

The agreements would, upon ratification, provide fair wage and benefit increases to CAW members. In addition, the settlements contain progressive provisions that would help CN retain and attract skilled employees critical to its workforce in the years ahead.

Full details of the tentative agreements are being withheld pending ratification, which the CAW expects to complete before the end of February, 2011.

The CAW represents approximately 3,975 workers in four distinct bargaining units at CN and CNTL (a subsidiary of CN) mechanical, clerical/intermodal , excavator operators, and owner-operator truck drivers.



Things would have been pretty dull around the CN terminals and on the roads if the strike had gone off. All those "locomotive" trucks would have been parked.

Dan: Did you ever read the Diesel Gypsy's story of hauling hides back from the west and getting stopped on the scales?
FLYING LOAD

Back in 1958, when I was running for A & H and H & M Express Lines, (same company, different destinations). We were running day and night. We would be hauling premium general freight to the western part of Canada. To get a fast turnaround, we would haul any thing we could get our hands on. Usually a straight load of whatever. Military, Hydro cable reels (M/T) or even hides from the slaughterhouses. That was the load on this particular trip.
Normally, they would be picked up in a folded, salted and dry state, tied into neat square bundles and tagged individually. At that time the Russian's would send in a ship to the docks in Montreal, to pick up a shipload of hides for export. At this time they were trying to get this load down east before the deadline. So when we showed up for the load, it was in such a rush that it was loaded GREEN. Which means that they were off the animals back within the hour.( producing and loading directly) The hides were still draining, slop & blood and were not even salted. (That is what they mean by green hides.)

It was in the middle of August and the temperature on the prairies was in the 90's. The load had to be loaded for axle weight, for going through the United States. We had no sliding axles at that time, so it had to be done by hand, then run over a scale till it came out correct. We started across the praries,(2 drivers running double)In the extreme heat. About 3 or 4 hrs. down the line, there was a car tailgating our trailer. Without a cloud in the sky for over 100 mi. I could see in my mirrors, that he was running with the windshield wipers on, and starting to swerve a little erratically. He quickly pulled off and I went down the road for about another 5 or 6 mi. then pulled over also. My curiosity getting the best of me. I was a little, but not totally supprised, that the blood and liquid crap was running out of the back doors. I had to run for my life, so it seemed at the time, it was not only draining liquid, but was also being devoured by a MILLION (or more) horse flies. The biggest I had ever seen. A giant swarm. I jumped back into the cab, closing the window and taking off down the road, trying to out run the flies. Remember, in the 50,s air conditioning did not exist. It must have been well over 100 F. in the cab.

We crossed over to the US at Noyes, Minnesota. Having the load sealed in bond on the Canadian side first.( with the flies catching up and attacking the customs officers we were promptly told to get the hell out of there. A day later we were travelling the US highway route # 2, east bound. We came around the corner at POWERS MICHIGAN scale shack. They were open for business, and they loved nothing better than to nail the Canadians for any fines that they could scrape up. Well I pulled ahead onto the scale and weighed the steering axle, then pulled the drive axle on. he stopped there and called me inside. Showing me that I was 2,000 lbs. to heavy on the front. In the meantime, a herd of horse flies caught up to the load. Being on the scale and the shack window wide open, with crap still dripping out on the ground.(on the scale) He said he would give us a break, if we could move the freight back to a legal position, he would let us go. He also knew that we did not have any sliders and that the load was customs sealed in bond,and could not enter the trailer.

Well the load being so greasy and slippery, that when we made a panic stop, the load shifted forward, and made our weight illegal. I pulled off the scale and drove like hell in revers, then slammed on the brakes, slowly shifting the load back again. Then pull back on the scale for a reweigh. After dripping all over the scale and reweighing 3 times, to which I was almost legal again. The stink and the flies were attaching the shack and the scale man so badly, that he chased us out of there and in no uncertain terms, told us what he thought of us, and would be looking forward to an excuse to throw us in jail at a future undisclosed date. So away we went , followed by the biggest herd of flies I had ever seen. The Canadian customs at Sarnia Ontario, gave us the fastest clearance I ever had. I have never seen a government man move that fast in my life.The next few weeks, I made sure that it was my turn in the bunk and out of sight, when we went over the POWERS MI. scale.

Great story, and no, I hadn't read that one. I've read some of his stories, but I guess I missed that one.
The hide loads on CN's rack and tarp trailers were not quite as messy as he describes, but they were still stinky and dripping.
 Ironically, Manfred Rhuland (not sure of the spelling) was part of the group that purchased Route Canada from CN in the 80s. He was best known as the owner of Cadline trucking, who was best known as a hauler of hides.

-Numbers bellow 100 are not required to paint their truck. It's like a privilege they have.They can paint them if they want but it's not mandatory to them.

-Oldest truck remaining in the Montreal fleet,seniority wise is BM 16,a brand new white T800 day cab.

-Numbers above 100 and new starter in the company must paint their truck within a year.

I don't know if the plate thing is related to their tax or corporate structure or something else, but their customer call centre is/was also in Manitoba (Downtown Winnipeg) even if their official HQ is in Montreal. Maybe they got a good deal on plates and insurances from the governement of Manitoba and they transfered registration over there? For exemple, a few years ago, all the U-Haul trucks had random plates from a little everywhere on the continent, but all their trucks (not the trailers) are now plated in Arizona.

This container was manufactured by Hyundai, but I couldn't find a plate. I didn't look on the back door, but if it's supposed to be on the front, it wasn't there.

Mike - JJG - All -

CNRU 288128? Had to get a chuckle from advice, "TOP POSITION ONLY"!

Railroad thinking of everything! The box might get into parts of the world
where handling practices and courtesies are only loosely followed, if at all?
Maybe somewhere, some were standing these on end? <G>

Do you mean something like that? (Actually, I caught it on the CN main line, cough, cough...)

            Rob, that would be the bland commercial plate for the state of Illinois.  I'm sure fee and taxes are more favorable there than in Michigan.  The locomotive paint scheme is not a big deal down here as is in Canada.  Too bad.

Good eye Rob, I took a quick look at the plate and because it was a black and white I assumed he just crossed over from Ontario into the Great Lake State......................turns out Illinois! I never caught the unit # till you inquired. It will be hard to track them on their # system, we'll have to see what the rhyme and reasons are to it! Otherwise we'll just have to rely on our good friends to the South to submit info as they post, thanks Mike S.

And Mike, you don't have to be a rookie to screw up here, I do it all the time !! :) At least there is no teacher saying, "Jimmy could do better if he would just apply himself" ,::) so we won't say a word............other then nice job Mike!!

UD06.

UD06? That's a strange number.
U = Unit? Upper? USA?
D = Detroit?

For the Illinois plate, that's probably because their fleet is registered in Homewood (Woodcrest) where it is base for the CN US operations.

Recently I saw this cool Western Star pulling a can with one of their new Eco Ride chasis's near their bramptom Container Terminal. A year ago when I went to Truck World, CN was show casing the new chasis that they would run in the future. They said they would do trial runs to improve fuel economy and go green. Since then I have not seen any new chasis's on the road. This is the first one I see from CN with a cool Western Star hooked to it. For more info you can watch an informative video from Truck News

Very interesting. Both the tractor and the chassis are good catches. Also, last year, I posted a picture of a Ecotherm container with a drawing of leafs/vine on it. Two or three ago, on the TCH, I passed on the line next to the highway. What I saw was a 53' container in the same colors as that container and the chassis in the picture below. I know that it was a CN one, but I didn't saw the number. It was grey with a green swoosh and a black top corner, plus it had a heater unit. I don't have much info, but I managed to get a soso picture and I'll try to post it here asap.

BB194, painted white, ducks through an underpass. It seems that CNTL trucks painted white are numbered lower than BB200.

That might be a local rule and the trucks are numbered by their senority.

You may be onto something there Pascal, I will see if I can ask one of these guys, if the driver was near his truck, I would have asked him. I assumed he was from around here ( I think I caught this truck at the dealer new) and Hank caught him on the freeway. It could be he is from up there, there were 2 Hank got the other day that had that PV # on them.

I've been looking Rob, I think they hired on a bunch just lately (maybe very busy) and must not be making them change the colour! Hope it isn't a permanent decision! I still see quite a few but just can't get a shot of them!!

Paul, that KW looks sweet!

Also, does Brampton really serve PA and the US? Won't they rather be served by US based drivers?  I understand that in the current case, the Brampton drivers cross the border by a highway control point (loaded or unloaded) instead of the CN moves the cans across the border by rail, then have them delivered by truck out of an US terminal. I am not sure to fully understand the CN point to do so, because they're a railroad, not a truck line. Let's say the cans came from / goes to the port of Montreal or Halifax, it would mean that they came down to BIT by rail, then the balance of the trip by truck? Does CN have any closer rail facility in the US to do that job? Also, excluding Chicago and Memphis, where the US-based CNTL terminals are located?
Title: Re: CN Transportation
Post by: Rob Archer on February 15, 2012, 06:10:17 PM
Apparently they are running the US out of Brampton.
I would speculate a few loads arrived IN BOND at BIT and it was faster/cheaper/ better for the customer to road them rather than rail them a relatively short distance into the PA - West Virginia area.

I was able to get a CNTL unit today myself - BB202 - in Mississauga.

Good eye BarraclouI don't know why it has a P instead of B either, it has Manitoba plates on it if that helps any. The last time I captured it was in Aug 2011 and it is the same #, before that it was new at the dealer with no number yet!

The CN Rail Terminal Vancouver was a good place to be, surprising for a Sunday. I sat there for 15 minutes, caught about 20 trucks. Then it quieted down so I left. Since the last time I was there it has changed a lot, construction was underway at that time and I sat across from the entrance to shoot as they came in or out, Now I can't get to the entrance but because of the old road not yet gone I was able to sit there and capture them from the other side now. When all complete I don't know it there will be a place to shoot from. The first one is kind of a crap shot as I wasn't positioned yet but it is a CN unit;

something different, a Volvo ::) condo inbound with a 20' can sitting backwards on a tridem chassis
(http://i888.photobucket.com/albums/ac85/Jimmyjacobs_bucket/019.jpg)
last one of the day was an outbound "blacksheep" Columbia hauling a heated 53' can

Hi Jim,
I would say that is a Montreal truck that Wayne sent you taken on his vacation trip last year. I hope that "Mr Policeman" didn't object to you taking a picture of that CN truck.

Here is CNTL BB301 seen Friday May 25 2012.

Nice Mike!

Rob, I was in a mad rush to get into that parking lot as I knew that CN truck was behind me and I also know that Mr. Policeman would think of my camera as a "handheld device" so I rushed into the left turn lane, got the advance arrow, parked and shot!! I don't even think the cop took notice!! The things we do for a truck picture ::)!

Another descent day, not much activity but due to construction, the yard is made visible (somewhat) to zoom in on a few trucks parked in the open! I was able to score that Coronado I have been after, the Pete and the partial WS!! Don't know what they are all doing around there but I'm sure when it's done there will be no way to view them this way!!
First off, the long awaited Coronado,could use a wash job but still looks good

Another one i have been looking to catch, this 388 42" flat top

an "adopted" one, an off coloured FLD 120

last up, most of the Western Star I caught the rear of some time ago.

Unfortunally the "CN-truck" is moving onto the "wrong/other" direction and we "can't see" what truck is in front!!!!! (brand/type/company) :( :( :( :'( :'( :'(

"Question", would the both "drivers" be "friends or enemy's" of each-other?? ;D ;D ;D ;) ;) ;) :) :) :)

Hello guys,

"CAST containerlines" ("based" in Antwerp, Belgium!!!!!) is afaik "taken over" (somewhere in the "2000" years) by "Hapag-Lloyd"!!!!!

Even here on the River Rhine and at the "RTE (Rhein (container)-termimal Emmerich)" you "can"  (;D ;D ;D) still "see/find" some containers in their "old/own" colors!!!!!
Afaik also, all the ones that are now in "Hapag-Lloyd" colors became also "Hapag-Lloyd" numbers!!!!!

I never "saw" (or can't "remember" anymore!!!!!) any "Linea Mexicana" containers here in "Holland/Germany" (or at the "terminals"), I have only a 1/87-scale "model" of that company!!!!!

Title: Re: CN Transportation
Post by: Ruffin51 on November 21, 2012, 07:51:41 AM
CAST was taken over by CP Ships prior to Hapag Lloyd buying CP Ships in 2005. At some point in the 1990s, CP began painting over the CAST logos, which they also did to LYKES containers. Shortly thereafter, they eliminated the brand names and traded only under the CP Ships name, using plain brown CPSU containers that sometimes featured a small white and red checkered CP Ships flag on the rear door as the only logo. Some old containers from carriers they bought out remained (and some still remain) in use, but all new containers were CPSU (now HLXU of course). I have a photograph I took several years ago of a CAST container with the logo painted out, still in use at the time. Finding one at all is difficult today, and finding one with the logo intact is nearly impossible. I have spent countless hours over the last several years frequenting terminals and places where CP Ships/Hapag Lloyd containers are handled, to no avail.

Hello Ruffin51,

Many thanks for your info!!!!!

Now I will "try" to make a picture of the "old CAST-containers" that are here on the terminal!!!!!
(No "public-access" and I don't "know" if I have "enough angle" for a picture "trough the fence"!!!!! For "security-reasons" is "photographing" on the terminal-property absolutly "forbidden"!!!!!)

But I don't "know" if they are still "used" or only "since years" are "stored"!!!!!
(There are also some old "Sealand" containers there "stored" since "years"!!!!!)
BTW, the terminal had a "yard-tractor" in "CAST-colors"  untill 2008 or 2009!!!!!
After a "big storm", 1 of the "cranes" was "blown upside-down" and "landed" on the "storing-shed" of the yard-tractors and fork-lift trucks!!!!!
Afaik, only 3 did "survive" (or could be "repaired"), the rest had to be "scraped"!!!!!
(Also the "crane", they became in 2010 a "fully new one"!!!!!)
Since then, 2 of the "yard-tractors" are still running in the orange "ECT-Rotterdam" colors!!!!!
The "new crane" (and the "forklift-trucks") are in "RWT (Rhein-Waal-Terminals) colors"!!!!! (2-tone blue und white)

They were supposed to be High Senority owner-ops. Check the unit number, if it is BB200 or below, then it is a high senority truck. If it is a higher number then maybe they aren't enforcing the paint code anymore.

JJG - All -

Certainly I don't wish to de-rail (bad pun), but your current Photos just up surely make
the case for the logic why 97,000 lbs. on six axles should be a "default" legal weight.
US Railroads playing same old melodrama, and bad mouthing that idea. Yet, so much
of their own operations very much dependent on efficient and economical use of trucks.

Stay tuned! Back to original program we were watching...

A lot of the non painted trucks from port kells were grandfathered from other companies aquired to increase labour force. I also know that they are required to operate a newer truck I think no older than 5 years, but there are a few hold puts from the old days before that rule was brought in.

Hi guys, thanks for the comments. I've seen newer refrigerator containers than this one. A few weeks ago, I saw some on a westbound BNSF stack. I can't remember the numbers, but I went by this place yesterday, hoping to find some. This place is in Elk Grove Village, which is actually a HUGE industrial park. This location here, always has CN containers in all different sizes and colors. I will go by here more often to look for more containers.

Yeah I like the 386 too, clean nice lines. I noticed that  truck # and wondered where he would be based, seeing as it was at the Vancouver (Surrey) dealer I assume it will be here but not sure! Ill have to ask one of the drivers if I get one stopped.

Seems to me there are messages and notes in this thread, which explain the fleet ID plan?
Here, doesn't the alpha prefix "BI" tell us something?

Post by: Pascal Pion on April 06, 2014, 05:24:13 AM
Vern,if the truck was hauling out of Vancouver, id of truck would start with BV.

Brampton Ontario starts with BB
Montreal with BM
So BI is somehow odd to me!!

I don't know for sure, but I can throw out a couple guess'. The only city fitting the current Cody would be Indianapolis. I noticed the pictures doesn't show plates and the truck doesn't follow the Canadian livery. Another thought I had was it could be a new terminal hence the "01." The last one I had would be it could be a driver grandfathered in from another era. I know there were a few drivers that did not have to follow the the 5 year rule for truck age. Those trucks don't last forever though so maybe someone upgraded. Anyone's guess though.

B.I.T. - BRAMPTON INTERMODAL TERMINAL

This is a key yard and destination for CN's Canadian container business.
Container Trains arrive here from Vancouver, Prince George, Chicago, Montreal and Halifax.

More on CN BIT - It is located on INTERMODAL Drive in Brampton, and Intermodal Drive goes beneath the yard tracks.
(http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v284/bluejaysfan/Intermodal%20Pictures/bitsubway_zps4537602c.jpg~original)

Wayne and I were there on a Saturday and the trucks were steady moving containers in and out.

This OOLU 40 box was pulled out by IFS. It traced as a load from Bangladesh, so it was likely loaded with garments. It moved on a feeder vessel to Columbo Sri Lanka and then loaded on a ship that went to Halifax NS. It was moved by CN train from Halifax to Brampton where it was released for local delivery.

This International was hauling a Western Canada Express domestic (heated) box to BIT, probably for furtherance to western Canada.

Hi Jim, please add Wayne's shots when you can. B.I.T. is a difficult place to shoot with issues of Urban Clutter and the railways are not accessible. There were stationary container trains stretched out for over a mile the day that Wayne and I went past. I think this was the reason:

Good stuff, Rob! I was shooting at a favorite container yard adjacent to Harvey, IL (Chicago) CN Intermodal terminal over the weekend. Do you see much ACL/Grimaldi stuff in Canada on the CN? Rare containers in general but quite plentiful in the Chicago CN area.

ACL? Yeah...Grimaldi not so much on CN. :-[
I just had a look at the ACL website and saw that they nw a USA based company.
I'll have to go back and look to see what containers I have shot for ACL.

Updated reply; I just went and checked a series shot on CN 148 and there were quite a few Grimaldis riding in the well cars with ACL. There were a lot of TRITON cans too. Triton being leasers I hadn't looked too closely.

Well Sir; the train is on CP not CN. It was westbound with containers for Detroit and Chicago.
The yard pictures are of B.I.T. ; I think it was an overflow yard of some sort.
Trucks+Containers + Trains = Intermodal.
Title: Re: CN Transportation
Post by: Ruffin51 on April 25, 2014, 05:30:55 AM
Rob/all,

Grimaldi has owned ACL as of the last several years. Despite reading ACL's corporate history many times, it is still murky to me...they emerged from European consortium shipping as a seemingly British company and as Rob mentioned they are now US-headquartered after being acquired by Italian con-ro operator Grimaldi Group. Grimaldi and ACL containers are now interchangeable in the way that Hapag Lloyd and CP Ships, Hamburg Sud and CCL, etc are. I was thrilled to snag some of the new series of ACL open tops over the weekend similar to the dry van on Rob's stack train!

Here is a Freightliner that Jan caught on the prairies with a BC unit number prefix.
BC must be "Broker" Calgary.

While waiting at a traffic signal on the new Perimeter RD, the CN Terminal is just off to the north so Judi zoomed in on these shots

there is a Westbound CN Locomotive she nabbed just passing in behind the row of tractors

as the light turned green, proceeding up the hill toward the freeway a Cascadia comes down to the terminal, she also snapped him

On one of his prairie photos last year Jan (Norseman) noted that the decal on the side of a CNTL he saw read Winnipeg.
I was up near CN B.I.T. today and noted that all the CNTL's I saw were plated in Manitoba and had Winnipeg as the place of head office on the decals.
These were all "BB" - Brampton Broker units.


** more to follow if I can find anything that gives the reason for this change of domicile.**

No pictures yet. 4-25-15.

The other day while I was watching 3 CNTL trucks went past. They weren't actually traveling together; one was probably realeased every few minutes. They were all handling ISO International containers.
