I believe the 87 car limit on coal trains to Bow is
dictated by some sort of operational reason,
which I do not recall whether it is at Bow or
elsewhere. Possibly a power issue on the D&H (CP).
The situation was addressed by long time Dispatcher
G. Smith on the D&H (CP) some years ago on the
D&H Yahoo Group.

Since LOTs can be 100 cars -- including buffers -- LCTs being 87 or 88 cars is probably more a local issue.

I don't think they send a unit into the plant first and then pull the loads through on the balloon track anymore, so you could be right.

Is the CLIPPER still being published - I found it to be very informative.
