55 loaded wells last night on 251, who moved through Greenville Jct. at a crawl, much like 142 had done earlier in the day.

76 loaded wells west on 251 this morning, biggest cut I've seen in a while.

Only 38 loaded wells last night, but 251 overall was over 10,000', and 10,000 tons.

Interesting
I may have missed them, but I have not seen any hapag ships in recent days. Perhaps they had a backlog of boxes from the 3 previous arrivals

There was a blank sailing last week, this week there is a ship due Thursday. Dwell is 11+ days in SJ due to lack of rail switches and crews… so boxes are piled up waiting on railcars. They could probably run a few dedicated trains at this point to clean up

78 empty wells headed east today on 142.

Next ship arriving now.
Not great svc from cp here if you ask me if they are not switching the docks frequently enough,
  by NHV 669
 
Hard to blame CP for a service they don't provide; NBSR switches the docks and just about everything else over in Saint John. CP doesn't operate anywhere near there, let alone beyond Brownville Jct. with 142.

251 passed Greenville after 6am today, only 26 loaded wells.

only 12 wells on this morning's 251

Cp advertised the SJ service as a cp service. While nbsr does the switching, I’m not convinced hapag would accept cp just blaming nbsr. I’m pretty sure cp can lean on nbsr to do a better job for cp’s big customer

Sure, but that's on Irving to get their track and equipment up to snuff, seems some of the 70s have had issues already.


Interesting sights on today's 142, CP 8757 (Every Child Matters) was the trail unit, and 5 spine loads, 4 of which were containers on trailer chassis.
