Detours over CN to Chicago

R.T. Challenger's picture

The UP has been detouring DMCN and its counterpart over the CN's Superior Sub this past week. CNW painted heritage unit UP 1995 was still third out this morning on a UP southbound that I met at Junction City that was taking the corner to head down to Adams.

Interestingly the BNSF has been sending engineers over to Pokegama to ride along with CN crews to get familiar with running the Superior Sub in anticipation of possible reroutes off the BNSF at Saunders.

CP is also planning on reroutes over the CN's Minneapolis Sub if flooding of the Mississippi River happens.

That is all I know right now.
