    A solid unit train with nothing but centerbeam-bulkhead cars

    Hmmm. Any ideas what was happening? Just shuttling empties to be staged for loading? Storage? Scrapping? Or? That was quite a good number of cars

    347 and 491 out of Kirk always had some centerbeam traffic. 347 was a hot shot that carried about 40 or 50 mty center beams on the rear. The CN would track those movements closely as these were hot cars. Anything overflow was on 491. Somedays youd get an extra 347 that had a ton of them along with the regular and the 491. Always boggled my mind.

    I don't know, but heading to Prince George and from there being distributed along the Prince George to Prince Rupert line, as well as the ex-BC lines North and South sounds kind of logical.
