"L E" means "load" or "empty"
When it shoes "E" that it means vehicle is unloaded from the railcar moving to storage yard at the destined terminal.

It is impossible to tell how many stops the trains your car is on will make along the way. It is safe to say it will be held up a few times along the way as its switched to other trains.

My car is on it's forth train so far.

There are a few big yards along the way:

TORMACYAR = 2nd largest rail yard in Canada just out side Toronto. My car was reported in this yard 3 days out of Halifax.

WINSYMAR = Largest rail yard in Canada just outside Winnipeg. My car was reported in this yard 6 days out of Halifax.

CLOBAR = Last Autoport in Western Canada, In Edmonton area. Our cars could spend time here before moving to Hansen's Forwarding on Annacis Island.

There is a car Ethan is tracking that has just been ahead of mine and yesterday it was reported in CLOBAR and it was still reported there today. This same car was reported in Saskatoon on May 31st where my car is now.

My car is now 10 days out of Halifax and was last reported in Saskatoon. I was hoping it would be in Vancouver this weekend but that seems unlikely now.

The car at CLOBAR is mine, it's only going as far as Edmonton so it shouldn't be leaving there.

The tracking on Hansen's is live for it now so I'm assuming it will be moved to a truck soon.

VIN ending with VD60835 now showing on Hansen's tracking as below. As it is arranged for trucking, I will remove it from CN tracking list.

The values for the E V column are A, P, W, X, Y and Z. I'm curious what they stand for. I tried using google to look up info on quick trace, but didn't get anywhere.

Same here,

I think I have A and Z sorted. Or I could be completely wrong I say it is 50/50

A = Arrived - Just a guess
Z = Offloading - This based solely on 2 cars I have seen removed from the list had the Z prior to being confirmed as on Hansen's
P = Is either Parked or Loading, I have seen this a few times on my cars journey and whenever I saw this my car had not made much distance between reports.

My guess is that they are indication of rail route. Not sure 100%
