Oh! Well, yeah, CN came right down into Vermont and most of the US newsprint
consumption was Canadian paper - even into the late 1990's there was a dedicated
Conrail newsprint paper train from Canada (Montreal -> Syracuse -> Selkirk). Lots
of CN cars in New England.


Tim,It was just passing commentary to show the CN's presence on the Rutland along with a single NC&StL hopper.While there were no CN hoppers present.Armand Premo
