UPDATE: CP grain train derailment claims three lives

Three Canadian Pacific Railway crew members were killed early Feb. 4 in a grain train derailment east of Field, B.C., on the Laggan Subdivision. The 112-car westbound train derailed at about 1:00 a.m. Mountain Time (3:00 a.m. Eastern Time) as it emerged from the Upper Spiral Tunnel, plunging about 200 feet off a bridge into the Kicking Horse River. The three Calgary-based crew members killed have been identified as conductor Dylan Paradis, engineer Andrew Dockrell and trainee Daniel Waldenberger-Bulmer.

For CP, “a watershed year”

Canadian Pacific Railway on Jan. 24 announced record results for fourth-quarter and full-year 2018. “The power of the CP operating model is evident in the strong performance across the company,” said Keith Creel, President and CEO. “We set records across many lines of business in 2018, including Canadian grain, potash and domestic intermodal. 2018 was a record by almost every measure and will be remembered as a watershed year.”
