CN Hopes to Re-Open Line By Midnight
Opinion250 News - Feb. 21, 2012
Prince George, BC- It will likely be midnight tonight before the CN rail line between Prince George and Prince Rupert can re-open. Yesterday, 46 coal cars bound for Prince Rupert, derailed near Telkwa just before 2 in the afternoon.
CN is promising major track improvements soon. [Yeah, right ... grumble ... ]
There have been far too many derailments of the C.N. I can't remember a time when there were so many wrecks. The U.S. had better clean up their act, and look after repairs. It was just fortunate, there were no tank cars carrying caustic chemicals.
However, like the dirty oil tankers from China, the day will come, when there will be, caustic chemical spills on the CN lines. There already have been some. With the number of wrecks lately, there will be many more.
See you again!
