Long train for the island!
 
Thanks for continuing to update this thread

Yes, it's been a while since I've seen a 7 car train. That's the capacity of the siding and when I saw it I was thinking there might be a complete swap 7 for 7 but only 6 empties were in the siding to return south. The locomotives struggle a bit to pull 7 loads up the grade by my place.

I do wonder...where does that propane go...what is Superior's on-site storage capacity?  Are they the source for all propane deliveries on the island? I know there is a natural gas pipe connection to the mainland, which was probably the reason for so many propane distributors closing up shop. My father in law has a propane fireplace with a big (80lb?) cyl sat on a pad outside his house. There are 1000s of propane bbqs around... Some service stations carry propane for vehicles...does all that propane come through Superior in Nanaimo?
 
General questions not directed at anyone in particular  
 
EDIT: And is that stupid exchange system for 20lb propane cylinders eating into Superior's business...?
