Next was a Westbound Intermodal with all the power up front - in my parlance aka a Hunter Harrison arrangement. - instead of the previous DPU scheme.
I can hardly wait to find out what the train crews have to say about that lunacy. GRRRRRRRRR
OTOH it is not surprising, after all when CN started running trains on the former BC Rail it took a real spill because of straight-lining a train that was too long. As a result 500'000+ fish went belly up in the Chekamus River. (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cheakamus_River_derailment)
Following that there was an order from Transport Canada to limit conventional (non-DPUed) trains to 80 cars.
It sure looks like Hunter Harrison hasn't learned that lesson, yet. The CP line through the Mountains is not like the CN line through the Mountains!
