    It's next stop as I write this is Sudbury Jct., ON. It's 11 hours, 47 minutes late already on its journey to Vancouver. Wow! Anyone have an explanation for this? I know CN freight traffic usually gets priority, but, the train just started its trip from Toronto. Did it leave Toronto seriously late? If so, why?

    I was 11 hours late on the SWC back in 2015 and was just 10 hours late on Cardinal 9/15....so not sure how uncommon.

    It left Toronto excessively late due to late arriving equipment.
