Dispatcher honored: Dispatcher Stan Taylor (left) received a certificate of merit from Fire Chief Lloyd Moist (right) and Winnipeg Mayor Bill
Norrie for rescuing a baby from a fire.
Taylor rescues infant
from burning house
Last Feb. 12 CP Rail Dispatcher
Stan Taylor was enjoying his day off
work when a neighbor rushed into his
house, shouting that there was a fire
next door.
Moments later, Mr. Taylor was on
his hands and knees, crawling
through the smoke-filled house,
searching for a 10-week-old baby.
"It was just lucky we got the baby
out of there," said Mr. Taylor afterward. "That baby just gave a little
whimper at the right time. I just padded over and started feeling around
and found this little bunting bag."
On March 23, Mr. Taylor was
awarded a certificate of merit by
Winnipeg Mayor Bill Norrie and Fire
Chief Lloyd Moist.
Mayor Norrie called the rescue a
"tremendous example for the
citizens of Winnipeg," and said Mr.
Taylor entered his neighbor's house
"at considerable risk to himself."
Fire Chief Moist said the baby
would likely have died had Mr. Taylor
not braved the blinding smoke to rescue him.
Mr. Taylor said he was a little taken
aback by all the publicity he has received.
"I thought there would be just the
fire chief, the mayor, and myself at
the presentation, but there were TV_
cameras, microphones, radio... It
scared hell out of me," he said.
Mr. Taylor, 54, started with CP Rail
as a call boy in 1944. He has been a
dispatcher since 1963.
Fox presents detailed plans
to federal environment panel
Detailed plans for the proposed
34-kilometre double-tracking project
through Rogers Pass have been presented to the Federal Environment
Assessment Review Panel.
CP Rail's Chief Engineer John Fox
outlined the plans at hearings held by
the panel April 13-17 in Vancouver,
Revelstoke, Golden and Calgary.
The plans detail the engineering
and construction program for the
$500 million project and also cover
the railway's program of controls
which are designed to mitigate any
adverse environmental effects during construction and operation of the
The Rogers Pass project will include two tunnels, one of them 14.5
km long through Mount MacDonald,
13 bridges and 34 km of new track.
In his remarks to the panel, Mr. Fox
said the grade improvement project
is of vital importance to the economy
of Western Canada and work must
begin this month to be completed by
late 1986.
Between 1965 and 1980, the railway experienced significant in-
'Para-chemics' to be trained
to help out at derailments
EDMONTON — CP Rail plans to
set up 12 specialized rapid-
deployment teams across Canada
for responding to derailments involving chemical products, a senior executive said April 21.
C.R. Pike, vice-president, operation and maintenance, told a conference on petrochemicals the railway's
plans involve having an initial team
formed and equipped by early fall.
The initial team will undergo evaluation across Canada and all 12
teams will be in place by the summer
of 1983.
The teams will be able to confirm
and identify chemical hazards and
their extent, carry out minor repairs
and assist in other aspects of
emergency work.
"These teams will have a major
capability — to move quickly to the
scene of a chemical derailment," Mr.
Pike said.
Creation of the teams would supplement the existing roles of railway
emergency crews, who are primarily
equipped for clearing derailments,
and chemical industry emergency
personnel who are called on to handle chemical products.
Mr. Pike termed the new railway
teams "para-chemics" who would
not take the place of the chemical
industry crews.
Each team will have its own four-
wheel-drive emergency vehicle
equipped with radio-telephone and
retractable rail wheels for use when
road access to a derailment is not
available. The vehicles' emergency
gear, including breathing apparatus,
chemical suits and hazard detection
equipment, will be packaged for ease
of transfer to a helicopter where
CP Rail has also conducted more
than 200 safety seminars across
Canada in the last year to familiarize
government, fire and police personnel with dangerous commodities normally handled by rail through their
areas, and to deal with information
and communication procedures between railway and emergency
creases in westbound traffic through
Rogers Pass resulting from the emergence of Western Canada as a major supplier of coal, grain, sulphur,
potash and petrochemicals to major
markets around the world.
With dramatic increases in this
traffic being forecast for this decade,
the producers of these and other
commodities now undertaking plant
expansion projects must be assured
that railway capacity will be adequate
to meet their transportation requirements, he explained.
To meet this predicted growth in
traffic, timing of the Rogers Pass project is critical.
Winter construction cannot be
done until construction forces are
underground and the 1982 work
program must start this month to
allow completion before winter.
The work at the west portal of the
14.5-km tunnel under Mount MacDonald is most critical in this regard
since a delay at the portal would set
back work on this main tunnel by a
year. The surface work must also be
completed this year to allow the project to proceed on schedule.
The 1982 work schedule includes:
• excavation of the east portal of
the Rogers Pass tunnel.
• construction of the west portal of
the Rogers Pass tunnel.
• clearing the surface route right-
of-way and construction of access
roads along the surface route.
• carrying out required geotech-
nical investigation.
• finalizing all engineering on the
surface route.
Both CP Rail and Parks Canada
recognize that rehabilitation of the
work area through Glacier National
Park is a major concern, said Mr.
Fox, and final engineering will include environmental and reclamation
Mr. Fox explained that the route for
the new line was selected because it

Pipe train beats deadline despite weather
NORTH PORTAL, Sask. — Spring
was already more than two weeks
old, but in this tiny border town in
southern Saskatchewan, the only
sign was the date on the calendar.
Overnight on April 8, heavy arctic
winds had blown in, often gusting to
more than 65 kilometres an hour.
With the winds came driving snow
and sub-zero temperatures. Visibility
for most of the night and the next day
was at or near zero.
At CP Rail's station, within a
stone's throw of the U.S. border crossing, a train crew was awaiting the
arrival of Soo Line's train Number
943. The mile-long freight was hauling eight miles of natural gas pipe,
bound for Burstall, Sask. and
Edmonton, Alta.
Pipe shipments are not normally
unusual events in this oil-laden corner of Western Canada. Pipe is nearly as common as prairie grain. This
train, however, was somewhat different. It had left Panama City, Florida,
four days earlier with orders to highball it north in order to make the
4,827-km journey to Edmonton by
April 15.
Organizing this type of run is no
simple feat. Six railroads, including
CP Rail, were involved. When the
train left Panama City in northwest
Florida, the temperature was in the
high seventies fahrenheit. By the
time it pulled into Chicago, weather
advisories had been issued. The
mid-west was about to be hit by a
whopper of a blizzard.

in eastern Canada
to cost $83.6 million
TORONTO — CP Rail plans to
spend $66.6 million this year on
building and reconstruction in Ontario and an additional $17 million has
been allocated for new construction
and improvements in the Atlantic Region.
Included in the Ontario program
are the laying of 108 kilometres of
new rail, the rebuilding of 27 bridges
and culverts, the construction of a
station and track maintenance facility
at Streetsville and the installation of
17 hot box detectors to supplement
the 36 others already installed
throughout the province.
"In the past six years, CP Rail has
spent more than $237 million in
Ontario upgrading and maintaining
the railway," says D.C. Coleman,
Eastern Region vice-president.
"Rail is an increasingly attractive
mode for transporting goods because it is energy efficient. This upgrading program helps ensure we
can meet traffic demand."
Rail is being replaced along 32.7
km between Bedell and Smiths Falls;
for 12.7 km from Milton to Guelph
Junction; for 23.6 km from the western part of Toronto to Emery; for 14.2
km in the eastern section of Toronto
into the railway's main yard in Scarborough and for 24 km between Hur-
kett and Bowker in Northern Ontario.
More than 458,000 railway ties will
be replaced as well this summer and
91,747 cubic metres of ballast will be
laid, most of it in southern Ontario.
Bridge replacement projects are
located at or near Port Hope, Smiths
Falls, Carleton Place, Belleville,
Chesterville, Streetsville, Milton,
Woodstock, Tilbury, Brantford,
Havelock, Medonte, Peterborough,
End of road: J. E. Stephenson, a
trainman at Souris, Man., has retired
with 35 years of service. Most of his
career has been spent in Souris, but
he has worked in Vancouver, Minne-
dosa and Wynyard.

The railway will also spend about
$2.4 million installing 17 hot box detectors which scan wheel and truck
assemblies of passing trains and
warn crews of overheated bearings.
Eleven of these detectors will be installed on the Oshawa-Windsor corridor.
By late 1984, some 80 hot box detectors will be installed on CP Rail's
4,989 km of track in Ontario.
Meanwhile, the railway is also
spending more than $17 million this
year for new construction and improvement projects in the Atlantic
A major part of the program involves replacement of close to
235,000 track ties at a cost of $6.4
million. Of the total, about $2.8 million
will be spent to replace 92,000 ties on
the Saint John Division, principally
between McAdam, N.B. and Brown-
ville Junction, Maine.
Another $2.3 million will be spent
to replace 87,000 ties at various loca-
tions throughout the Eastern
Townships as well as near Quebec
City. And in the Montreal area, $1.2
million will go for the replacement of
37,000 ties at various yard locations.
A $5 million track laying program
begins this month to replace 34.6 km
of double track rail between
Beaconsfield and Vaudreuil on Montreal's West Island. Quarter-mile
lengths of new 136-pound continuous welded rail will replace the
existing lighter rail.
In addition, about $550,000 is
being spent to replace rail at various
locations between Magog and Foster
in the Eastern Townships.
More than $2.2 million is earmarked to replace various railway
bridges on the region. Major projects,
involving the installation of new steel
bridge spans, are scheduled at Scot-
stown, 45 km west of Megantic, Que.
and at St. Jean and St. Constant,
south of Montreal.
Almost $1 million is being spent to
acquire 20 new pieces of track
maintenance equipment for the region. The equipment includes brush
cutters, ballast regulators, switch
tampers and speed swing machines.
Eight hot box detectors will be installed across the region at a cost of
$900,000. Three devices will be
placed in the Montreal area, two near
Trois-Rivieres, and one each near
Quebec City, Saint John, N.B. and on
the Lachute sub-division between
Gatineau and Hull. The additional
equipment brings to 11 the number of
hot box detectors on the Atlantic Region.
At the railway's St. Luc yard in
Montreal, nearly $800,000 is being
spent for the installation of a closed
circuit television system to improve
the accuracy of recording all freighl
car arrivals and departures.
The Atlantic Region employs some
5,800 people and covers more than
4,500 km of track throughout
Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, parts of Vermont and Maine, as
well as some eastern areas of
Principal traffic on the region includes import/export containers,

Campaign launched: This small Toyota was nearly severed by a train during a simulated crash held to
graphically launch Operation Lifesaver in B.C.
Operation Lifesaver
Dangers of level crossings
illustrated by car/train crash
VANCOUVER — A 9,072-tonne
train slammed into a 590-kilogram
Toyota at the B.C. Railway yard in
North Vancouver March 29 to graphically launch Operation Lifesaver in
British Columbia.
Some 50 representatives from the
media, government and railways witnessed the simulated accident which
illustrated how an automobile always
comes out second in a confrontation
with a train.
The boxcar and locomotive, moving at about 8 kilometres an hour,
backed into the parked automobile
which was then pushed into a stationary boxcar. The impact nearly severed the car.
Operation Lifesaver is the nationwide public awareness campaign
sponsored by the Railway Association of Canada and Transport Canada in co-operation with the Canadian
Transport Commission, the Canada
Safety Council and CN and CP Rail.
The campaign is designed to make
Canadian drivers more alert to the
potential hazards of railway crossings and reduce the number of train/
car accidents.
In addition to the simulated accident, the launching was punctuated
with speeches by Don Kasianchuck,
assistant deputy minister of transport; Bill Stroeth, Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers and Roger
Cyr, national chairman of Operation
According to Mr. Cyr, "an annual
average of 110 persons are killed
and 550 others injured, requiring
medical attention or hospitalization,
as the result of train/auto collisions
occurring at railroad crossings."
"The numbers may not be impressive compared to the overall
number of victims of motor vehicle
accidents but the results of crossing
accidents are invariably death, serious physical injuries and extensive
material damage. There appears to
be almost universal apathy on the
part of the general public toward the
hazards of rail/highway crossings,"
he said.
Mr. Cyr added that accident investigations have shown that negligence
on the part of drivers, including misjudging safety margins and ignoring
warnings, are the principle causes of
He said train/car accidents can be
reduced "... through a better understanding of crossing hazards, proper
driver attention, and the observance
of warning devices."
The target group of Operation Life-
saver are drivers between the ages
of 30 and 50, the age group most
involved in this kind of crash; the
average age of drivers involved in
rail/car crashes in B.C. is 42.
Increasing the number of controlled crossings does not appear to be a
solution to reducing the problem of
accidents. While 23 per cent of the
35,500 crossings in Canada are
equipped with automatic warning devices, roughly 43 per cent of all train/
car accidents occur at such crossings.
Common accident causes have
been found to be drivers misjudging
the speed of trains, racing trains to
the crossing, disregarding automatic
warning devices and proceeding
around crossing gates or passed
flashing lights, and not exercising
caution when approaching a familiar
Operation Lifesaver highlights the
fact trains cannot stop in time, but
cars can. The average 150 car freight
train travelling at 50 km/h needs 960
metres to stop while an auto travelling at 90 km/h requires 70 metres to

CPRailXA Railway gains competitive edge in potash market
Distribution centre opens
for dry bulk commodities
MONTREAL — A new distribution centre for dry bulk commodities
arriving here by rail has begun operating at Sortin Yard.
The facility, one of two CP Rail will
put into operation this year, illustrates
a new approach to received traffic by
Atlantic Region's marketing and
sales team.
Construction has started at St. Denis Yard of a second distribution centre, complete with overhead crane, to
handle in and out-bound traffic of
steel and steel products. It is sche-
duled to begin operating in
A third installation for the distribution of synthetic resins is under consideration.
The Sortin Yard facility was built at
a cost of only $67,000 and in its first
week of operation last month, more
than 900 tonnes of Saskatchewan
potash, the principal commodity
handled at present, was transferred
by an under-track conveyor from rail
cars to trucks for local distribution.
Donnelly Transport Company is
handling truck deliveries throughout
Quebec, Ontario and northeastern
United States.
Michel DeBellefeuille, regional
manager of marketing and sales
here, said the new facility gives CP
Rail a competitive edge in a market
the railway found difficult to compete
in before.
"It has been difficult for us to increase our share of the potash market here because only 30 per cent of
the fertilizer companies are served
by our rail lines," he said.
"The balance are either served by
CN Rail or have no access to rail lines
at all."
The facility is particularly beneficial
to the smaller fertilizer companies
which have been purchasing their
potash through the larger firms with
railway sidings. These companies
can now have their products conveniently shipped to their door at a competitive rate, he said.
About 122,500 tonnes of Saskatchewan potash is purchased
annually in Quebec and CP Rail's
market share is about 34 per cent.
In 1980, for example, the railway
transported 30,000 tonnes by unit
train to Thunder Bay where it completed the remainder of the voyage to
Montreal by ship. About 11,794 tonnes was delivered directly to Montreal by rail.
"At the moment, it is more econo-

above. (Photos by Bob Kennell)
In Operation: Michel DeBellefeuille, regional manager of marketing and
sales, grabs a handful of potash as the conveyor transfers it into an awaiting
mical for the fertilizer companies to
receive their potash by ship and have
it stockpiled at the harbor as they
have done this year," explained Ron
David, director of mine products, who
was also instrumental in the Sortin
Yard project.
"But if the traffic in wheat and iron
ore picks up, the ships will not be as
available as they are now; this will
force shipping prices up and perhaps
make the use of unit trains directly to
Montreal more economical."
The Sortin Yard operation can
handle 35 cars at a time on its 700-
metre unloading track and the yard
itself has the capacity to handle unit
The marketing and sales team is
making a concerted effort to corner a
greater share of the market in other
bulk commodities like coke, road salt,
foundry coke, coal, phosphate urea,
sodium nitrate, amonium sulphate
and calcium.
Mr. DeBellefeuille added that, in
addition to profitability, the operation
will result in less switching of cars to
private sidings and a faster turnaround of equipment "because the
cars will be in our hands."
"But there are two other important
points about the Sortin Yard distribution centre," he added. "One is that
management approved the expense
without firm commitment from the
potash suppliers and, in these times,
that says something about their phk
losophy regarding the value of intermodal transportation in maximizing
the use of railway equipment and improving CP Rail's profit picture.
"Also, our salesmen can now go
out and sell something concrete, a
service we could not provide here before," he said, adding the region expects a pay-back on the investment
at Sortin Yard within a year.
The second, and equally important point, said Mr. DeBellefeuille, is
the Atlantic Region's effort to gene
rate revenues from received traffic
and not just forwarded traffic.
"On the revenue plan, only revenues from forwarded traffic are
taken into account so it has been the
tradition of regions to treat received
traffic as the responsibility of the region from where it originates. There
was little incentive to develop new
markets for received traffic, and each
region concentrated on its forwarded
traffic," he explained.
"From a straight railway point of
view the concerns of both the shipper
and the consignee must be taken into
account so received traffic is just as
important as forwarded traffic," he

Pipe train weathers storm

Still, the train orders were explicit.
Except for brief stops to change
crews and locomotives and to conduct inspections, the train must continue on.
A special contract between the
purchaser of the pipe, Nova, an
Alberta Corporation, and the railroads called for delivery at Edmonton
by April 15 or severe financial penalties would result.
The 3,719 tonnes of pipe — 1,200
pieces in all — was manufactured in
March by Berg Steel Pipe Corp., of
Panama City. It would be used by
Nova in its Empress Relocation Project, an upstream facility of the Foothills pipeline.
The pipe, ranging between 60 and
91 centimetres in diameter, was specifically designed to be used in a
metering and injection system and
therefore had to have particularly
thick walls. The 1.1 to 2.06-
centimetre, heavy wall pipe is not
available from Canadian sources.
The only plant manufacturing such
pipe is Berg Steel Pipe Corp.
