CP train 140 made an abrupt stop in Butler IN as it was coming off the NS Chicago Line and head up the Huntington District, The wide/heavy load had just spent the night just to the east of the crossing and had just started the trip for the day and had almost cleared the crossing when CP 140 made the turn to head north. I had watched this load cross the Chicago Line the day before in Edgerton and rail traffic was stopped in Edgerton. CP 140 was delayed about 10 hours before continuing on it's way.

Looks like things could have been much worse and the crew of the CP train were unhurt.. Someone from the trucking company is unemployed this morning.
