Remarks & Notes 
The CN 2962 is starting the drop down the 3% grade off the highest point on the Canadian National Railway. The spur serves the Teck's Luscar coal processing plant. The coking coal is moved by heavy haul truck from the Cardinal river Mine. Teck recently announced that they intend to shut down operations at Cardinal River in two years. The new cut they would have to open, is simply too far from the plant to make it economical at todays prices...
