What's on CN 2329 East?
Encounter at Beach Junction
In the past few years, I've been paying a lot more attention to the freight cars in trains. The locomotives are certainly the stars of the show, but the freight cars are the ones that actually earn money for the railway. Flatcars, boxcars, autoracks, tank cars, covered hoppers, container cars... there is a lot of variety in today's trains.
I was watching a train full of autoracks a while ago and decided to photograph some of the logos on the train. Autoracks carry road vehicles like cars, trucks and SUVs, and in North America are usually multi-level and fully enclosed. Structurally, these are built on top of flatcars, which are often leased from TTX or other companies and are not owned by the railways whose logos they sport.
I took the opportunity in June to photograph one train and document some of the logos on the autoracks. Here they are, in alphabetical order, except for CSX which I listed first. You'll see why.
BNSF railway logo
Note the clips holding the BNSF "swoosh" logo onto the car.
CN railway logo
The CN logo is quite simple - the CN "wet noodle" on black.
The Conrail logo was an interesting find.
Canadian Pacific railway logo
No "logo" here - just "CANADIAN PACIFIC RAILWAY" in block lettering.
It's not unusual to see Ferromex autoracks through Winnipeg. Autoracks travel a long way!
Ferromex Grupo Mexico
This seems less common to me.
Norfolk Southern thoroughbed
I am an unabashed fan of the Norfolk Southern "thoroughbred" logo. I think it really conveys speed and power, something that a railway should be proud of.
SummarySo there you have it - eight railways' logos on one train. Not too bad! The only one I didn't see that I often do is Kansas City Southern.
