    What is the DIM train? also, is it possible to differentiate trains and train symbols without a scanner? for example, how would can one tell the difference between CP T27 and CP T20? Thank you for all of the information you put in the description of your videos. I've recently started studying and watching your older videos to get a better understanding of rail in Windsor and they really help.

      @Jack Soderlund Well CP does run ethanol trains here. That's what you likely saw. Those are 650/651 and the occasional 652/653. 644/645 were a thing but one hasn't run in over a year so I don't know if it's still a train on CP or not.

      CPWindsorsub are you sure? two weeks ago i spotted a crude oil train at optimist. it's uploaded on my channel. do you think it was a re route then? i will take your word, but please try to explain to me what i saw a couple weeks back.

    • CPWindsorsub
      CPWindsorsub 4 days ago

      @Jack Soderlund Dim trains aren't that often. It's been a while since one has ran. Oil trains haven't ran through here in like 3 or 4 years.

    • Jack Soderlund
      Jack Soderlund 4 days ago

      CPWindsorsub thank you. how often does the dim train run? also, what are the symbols of the crude oil trains that go through windsor?

    • CPWindsorsub
      CPWindsorsub 4 days ago

      DIM stands for dimensional. Dimensional loads or cars are loads/cars that don't follow the standard dimensions normal rail cars are built in. In the case of that train it consisted of empty wind turbine flat cars. For some reason even though its an empty train they still give it the dimensional ID. For the scanner question if you know what the train looks like normally then yes you can. For example, 147 is always a westbound loaded autorack train, 244 is always an empty eastbound autorack train, 140 is always an eastbound manifest etc. The T train IDs are based on what yard they're going to in Detroit. T28/27 and T40/41 go to NS Oakwood Yard in Melvindale, MI and are almost always a daytime move, normally OD at 7:00am in Windsor. T20/21 goes to CSX Rougemere Yard in Detroit and is almost always a nighttime movement.

      No it's been several years since CP last ran oil trains through here.

    ………..I think train sets like these are incredible and very ingenious they way they operate...………. but I draw the line when these guys start dressing like engineers and using walkie talkies to quote requisition forms for the loads on the various trains, much less talking like they're real trains and carrying on real time business. A little too far over the edge I would think. But have fun anyway. :)

    Nice video! Is this the one on Allison Rd near Alexandria? I am grateful to have gotten there last March before the signals were demolished. What does it mean for a signal drops? Did the signal literally fall on the train, or does it mean giving a sudden stop for no reason?

    • CPWindsorsub
      CPWindsorsub 5 months ago

      Yeah this was near Alexandria. It just means the signal unexpectedly went from displaying a permissible indication to a stop indication.

    Great looking layout so far! Couple things I would do to add to the realism is weather the locos and rolling stock. Other than that and more fine detailing it's well on it's way to being a great setup. Is it basically one big yard and a mainline run or are there more switching opportunities out of town?

    C.P. has now donated 5903 to the Canadian Railway museum in Quebec. As usual Quebec gets everything, it would be nice if C.P. would do the same for one of the museums out west since the SD40's were so much a part of western railroading.
