Tuesday Train #64

IMGP9467RawConvCN Train 305 is lead Westbound at Newcastle Ontario by Locomotive 2446, a C40-8M built by GE in 1992. 


CN 305 west is a manifest freight, made up of all kinds of different freight cars.  The early part of the train was mostly oil tanks, with a mix of box cars, lumber cars and autorack cars further back.

IMGP9480RawConvCN 3094, an ET44AC also built by GE in 2015 is found mid-train as a radio controlled Distributed Power Unit (DPU). 


The tail end of CN305 trundles away.  The Rear End Device mounted to the coupler isn’t quite as romantic as the caboose of yesteryear, but it gets the job done of communicating by Radio that the train is still connected, and being a visual red light at night.
