Thanks for the pic.
Do they really need 4 x 81/G (12,000 hp) on these trains. How many wagons per train, please?
  Y115 Assistant Commissioner

Location: Portland
Mostly about 40 to 44 wagons, I have no idea why the four locos today, usually two were all they used in the past, we only had two yesterday.

I couldn't stop to count, but today's train looked longer than normal. The loco's were under the Cliff St overpass and the tail was nearly at the bend to the north. I'll try and nip out a bit later this afternoon.

Interestingly, 8101 and 9 wagons were left behind in a siding. It looks like they took the V's and left the N's.

BL30 and X48 arrived with the grain train about 1000.
Didn't count wagons, after walking around five hours waiting for train I'd had enough.

It's the rain and the salt air...

We've seen more traffic in the last 2 months that we've seen for the previous 2 years.
