The Great Saskatchewan PIPELINE

Ok Here is my idea.... One big mother of a grain vac at port side and a pipeline to sask... Who's with me lol.

I think it is high times we changed from the way things were done in the 1920s . Not sure what but I do think pipe line of some sort. Maybe pods and pipe full of water? Any one have a better plan.


Common sense seems to be a lot less common then I believe the name implies...

get the grain up into space, then you could move it anywhere, china, india... its gravity that makes freight so expensive.

You mean something like large vessels on steel tracks with steel wheels? Just think how cheap and efficiently grain could be moved.

Efficient movement of traffic is one-way! Put all west bound on CP line and all East bound on CN line. Only cross over would be short overlap to Prince Rupert and Church hill.

Especially with logistics management that could keep things running efficiently and consistently, and hay if we are putting things on a Christmas wish list, how about competition in the industry that forces them into a higher level of service.

perhaps we need to look at a pre-1920s approach. Think steam-punk

Still to many rail lines, the trains move so slow past our place, people could run faster..Need to remove some of these in land terminals to cut down on turn around time..One giant terminal @ Saskatoon, nothing east of it..Truck grain only in the winter, to save the highways..
