Another Unusual Articulated Hopper: CN 399000
When doing the post about CN 398000, which was built to carry grain, I completely forgot about CN 399000, made to carry potash.
Like 398000, 399000 is a one-of-a-kind hopper. Built in 1993, it is 55 feet long and has a capcity of 4600 cubic feet. It is painted with the standard Canpotex Limited grey with the green logo.
Thanks to Eric of Trackside Treasure for the reminder. Photo from Eric and Laurence Gagnon from the CN Lines website.
