Since I am not an expert of the logistical
terms used in RoadRailing, I can only tell you from what I felt while watching a train pulling them past me down behind my friend 65535
's place a few weeks ago.
After the engine
had boomed past us, we stood and faced a cargo of truck trailers complete with wheels rolling lazily with inertia. What looked like a hundred white trailer cars coasted gently along the curve we stood on and I was stunned by its massive beauty and uniformity.
RoadRailer is a train to trailer freight
system that is offered by CN
along the Toronto
corridor to companies and individuals who wish to transport
freight over long distance
s for a relatively lower cost than by highway
alone. Time and routing errors
are nearly eliminate
d due to the fact that cargo
does not require unloading at transfer stations; It is simply transfer
red onto tractor trailer
s for delivery to the client.
Roadrailers add to the anonymous beauty of freight trains. Read more at www.cn
