      Canadian Pacific and Veteran's Day

      I read somewhere recently, that Canadian Pacific RR, at the Eleventh hour, of the Eleventh day, of the Eleventh month, will halt all traffic on the property, consistent with safety, for two minutes, then whistle off, and resume traffic.  What a neat tribute.

       

      Can anyone verify this?

      Here is what I found. https://www.cpr.ca/en/community/remembrance-day

      They don't say they will stop all traffic but every CP train will sound it's whistle!

      "Canadian Pacific continues to pay tribute to the more than 33,000 CP employees who served in the last century's two world wars. This tradition of service continues every year, with every CP locomotive sounding its whistle at 11:01 a.m. local time, if safe to do so, to start a moment of silence."
