I have seen pictures of it for years and today the articulated grain car they built for the churchill line rolled right infront of me.  It was a little faded, but it was in good shape with out any extra add ons.  It was west bound heading for the west coast so you may as yet see it in Vancouver in the next week.  I really need to bring my camera to work with me so I can get some shots.

Thanks for the link Pyronova.  It just seeing that beast in person (and if I hadn't lifted my nose out of my book right at that moment).  Its one of those things that you really need to see sometimes.

I see the Manitoba and Canpotex hopper sets all the time here in Melville. They are usually switched here in the yard. They are interesting cars for sure.

Both the Manitoba car and the Canpotex car get loaded at the mustard elevator here in Melville on a regular basis.

I saw the 399000 at Melville on Sunday, July 18, 2010.  No chance for a decent pic.
