I wonder if it'll be cost-effective for CN to raise that loco vertically from such a depth, I'd imagine they need some extra-heavy-duty cranes!

Just goes to show how well built the loco's are.
recovery for the loco could be a fun trip, how will they get anything to it, the railroad track bed is not wide enough for a crane to be used, Mmm

Stay off the tracks!
You know, that's a bit of a testament to the durability of that locomotive - I find it somewhat amazing that the radio still worked!

At least CN Rail can't get blamed for mistakes on this one - rockslides aren't under their control.

Considering that the antenna must have been ripped off or at least buried, you're right!
