CN distributed power on coal train
July 3rd started with a trip to Terrace for the day. Along the way I caught up to an empty coal train headed East around Kwinitsa (midway point between Rupert and Terrace) with BC Rail 4648 at the rear of the train pushing. I first saw this combination about 2 years ago. It seems CN is practicing this quite frequently on there longer trains coming into Rupert. A single locomotive on the front and another at the tail end.
