Over the past few weeks I have held another solo operating session. This follows the CP operating session I had. I ran CN 404 and then CN 403 through the layout, doing some local switching along the way.
On my layout, train CN 404 runs east from Melville, SK to Winnipeg, MB. This train performs local switching in Georgetown, the town that is the main focus of my layout. CN 404 switches the Irving Oil spur and the Manitoba Pool grain elevator, when required.
In this session, CN 404 spotted a tank car at Irving Oil and exchanged grain cars at the Pool elevator.
Please note that I had the train number wrong in the video. In Canada eastbound trains have an even train number and westbound trains have odd numbers.
As you might guess, CN 403 on my layout runs from Winnipeg to Melville! The train also does local switching in Georgetown, but only switches the CP interchange track as required. It also switches the Cargill grain elevator in Helene.
I had to split the videos to get them under the 15 minute limit.
In the first video, CN 403 switches Georgetown. It had one car to drop off for CP and picked up three cars.
The second video shows CN 403 working the Cargill elevator.
Thanks for watching!
PS if you want to see the real train CN 404, I happened to catch it in Winnipeg in March.
