The performance, besting the previous record from October 2018, came at a time when CP’s “network was close to the highest it has ever been.” Gross ton-miles (GTM) averaged 817 million per day in April, the second-highest average workload of any month on record.
With regards to train length and train weight, April 2019 was the best April in CP history. April train length, excluding local traffic, was an average of 7,576 feet; while train weight, excluding local traffic, was an average of 9,356 tons.
The results, CP believes, are “due to the ongoing efforts of the 13,000-strong CP family, the strength of the precision-scheduled railroading operating model, and continuous communication and collaboration with customers.”
