    I kind of like it, it's a compromise. It's a huge nod towards CN's heritage, while maintaining a modern logo, like a BUSINESS should.
  3. Locomotives have been rebuilt from worse than this. Mind you, the fire isn't out yet in this shot. I hope no one was hurt. Looks like they got the rest of the train uncoupled pretty quick.
  4. TSB said that the train was already decelerating, (I'm inferring because of the station stop at Fallowfield) and was moving at 47 mph when the impact occurred. An Emergency brake application was initiated 2 seconds before impact (while already braking for the stop). The bells and lights activated 47 seconds before impact. The crossing arm was fully down 25 seconds before impact. No horn was sounded as there is a municipal by-law prohibiting horn use between I think he said 8 pm and noon, however 915's bell was activated. So, basically, in the TSB's update, we got no indication of anything am

  6. Still waiting for the return of the RDC's on Vancouver Island... Doubt it'll happen.
  7. It's not about preventing the accident. It's about saving money and increasing the shareholder profits.
  8. Interesting to note the rule changes by TC. However, couldn't the vast majority of these rules be bypassed by simply disconnecting the power from the rest of the consist?
  9. Interesting to note, the train's FRED functioned for quite some time post derailment.... Edit: SBU....
  10. This scenario could not happen. Zero pressure in the brake pipe means the train brakes are ON. The locomotive compressors provide pressure to the brake pipe which releases the train brakes. Best example of this, is when a train separates (breaks a knuckle) the trailing cars come to a stop, because they've lost pressure in the brake pipe. (Its the hose that hangs under a coupler). Mind you, the head end will also come to a stop as well, due to the same loss of pressure.(Hollywood not withstanding) What we do know: When initially tied down, the locomotive was running. The locomotive, was T
  11. GE motive power is known for its ability to create spectacular fire shows. Usually from the exhaust.

    Hi there. I need some more info about what's going on. Single engine? What's behind the engine, cars wise. Is this near a yard? In a yard? I have a feeling, as 7082 is a GP9, that what you're seeing is them "kicking" cars into their spots in a yard. Here's a video, of what I'm talking about, but shot in Brockville.
