Grain Rush II

From the west end of the yard.

Earlier, I posted photos of a train of 40-foot boxcars filled with grain on the M & M Sub. Imagine my delight at "finding" it again, this time with two other grain trains in the Fort Frances yard!

Of course, some photos were in order. (Using, once again, my personal helicopter.)

From the east end.

On the M & M Sub., there are always two grain trains in staging. One is headed south to Thunder Bay or Duluth/Superior loaded with grain, the other is headed back to Winnipeg and the prairies for more loads. Every now and then, a train of 40-footers off of light rail branchlines joins them.

Very occasionally, like as happened recently, you can find them all in the yard.
