And to add to that, today's 142 brought 43 empty wells, in addition to 7 loaded, with 93 manifest cars trailing 3 GEs and 5743.

Through Greenville Jct. at 14:23.

CAGEMA is heavy export traffic and it goes via CN. You can see CN train 594W on YouTube with plenty of CMA boxes.

Empty wells are due to shortage the last few trips, lots of grounded boxes at SJ still waiting to go west and another ship Thursday… dwell is due to lack of wells and lack of wells is due to port and route problems on the west coast. Remember it’s all a symphony in balance and when one section gets messed up the whole thing goes.

CP 251 had 63 single & double stacked wells of mostly international containers on its marker when it passed the Greenville Jct live cam at 0035 Tuesday 12/14/21.

No empty wells today, as 142 was just 2 GEs with 79 manifest and a single CP container.

Genoa Express seems to be the next Saint John bound vessel for CP traffic, but showing a Saturday arrival as they are still well on the other side of the Atlantic.

Thanks for the assistance with these apps, and shipping lanes.

8794 served as the lone unit for today's 142, with 24 mixed freight followed by 8 loaded wells with a few EMP and CP boxes, and by my count, 84 empty wells for SJ.

Genoa express should dock over night
It’s in the bay of fundy

Saw that this morning. Today's 142 was a true Saint John Express, entirely wells, 151 of them. Oddly enough, 17 loads were sprinkled inconsistently throughout the train.

And they departed already
Not a long stop in SJ

Short 251 last night. Between camera skips, it appears the whole train was roughly 50 cars, with a few lumber loads, and roughly 45 loaded wells. Lots of stack action.

37 loaded wells went west last night on 251 through the Greenville Jct. cam at 23:50, assuming this might be the first block off of the Genoa Express. I saw shots of NBSR 907 running with containers yesterday in daylight, perhaps they made it onto this train? Apparently, there were customs issues on that side of the Maine border.

Yeah they're at 10+ days dwells due to lack of wells... now you've seen the huge influx just to clean everything out. No call until the New Year, then a double call 1/3 and 1/6... get ready to get buried! From there the schedule resumes weekly calls, 1/13, 1/20, 1/27, ect...

52 loaded wells Monday night, another 45 west last night.

Last 251 of 2021 had 62 loaded wells, they must be running out of empties over at SJ.

The two ships CN9634 mentioned look to be a day behind schedule, but both due this week.

Barcelona express is arriving now
Hopefully cp used the holiday break to properly position well cars to quickly move these new boxes inland

Haven't seen any head east as of late, none yesterday, they took another 68 loaded wells west last night on 251.
