    From the CN Lines Sig:

    "On April 5 radio station CJOB reported that "CN Rail is changing the way it builds and assemble trains that pass through Winnipeg at Symington Yards." Company spokesman Jim Feeny explained that no-one will be laid off, although some jobs will be shifted.

    On the C-N-R group on Yahoo, a poster indicated that trains will be CN blocked, marshalled and switched out at yards before they get to Winnipeg.

    Another poster indicated that Edmonton's hump yard is apparently also rumoured for closure."

    Better get out there and take some pics while you still can!! Google maps is good too for aerial shots.
