Thanks for the most recent video of NWP movement on Oct.6,2011. Nicely located shot and good to see NWP engine pulling loads. Noted the cars were CN Soo NS and old Southern. Must be getting grains from back in midwest or south. Anyone know from where the receivers are receiving grain?

I know they get grain from Canada. Until the NWP started again, these mills were shipping the grain to Roseville or somewhere, then trucking it to their locations (Petaluma and Santa Rosa). I bet they don't miss doing THAT! I don't know about grain coming from Dixie, maybe those cars were used by another road or leased. Maybe someone else knows about that. Hopefully this somebody in the know will chime in with their two cents.
