Remember BN's Trough Train? It was a coal train with five or six articulated cars. Each car was the length of 20 or so 50-foot hoppers. Each "trough" could be filled continuously with coal, making for easier loading. This ballast train applies the same concept. Each "car" is about 600 feet long, filled with ballast. This train is headed for Bond for summer maintenance duty.
