CN 7210 Built 04/1959 was in Rupert today offloading the rail barge from Whitter. it looks like the crew will have to wait for the raising tide before reloading the barge for the trip North. It has been awhile since I've seen CN use this type of power here. The barge crew usually has mainline road power like SD50's or Dash-9's assigned to them. I'll try to find out if they ran the GP down on its own or in a consist with some bigger power.
GMD-1 Road number 1444 at Ridley Terminals Inc south of Prince Rupert, B.C. April 5th 2008. Waiting for the next batch of cover hoppers to arrive from the interior of the province with their load of wood pellets. Ridley Terminals off loads the hoppers into a gigantic storage bid before loading the pellets into bulk carriers destined for locations around the globe.
