I imagine CP wants to get the ball rolling on Searsport asap. CEO Creel is exuberant about development and I am sure they have something in the works, plus. Perhaps it will take a committed Class one to apply their massive marketing skills to finally utilize the potential of Searsport .Lord knows it's been many a moon waiting for the blessed day. unit trains and big ships call.
Looking at aerials of port facilities to me are not encouraging. If they want to do Potash I would think that they will need to make a circular track around the whole facility. Is there enough room without changing what is already their. Also, can the branch handle the increased traffic. How big a train could they handle at one time?
