February 2003 was the beginning of the end for the ONR 40 foot box car in revenue service. Their replacements? These former Southern Pacific 50 foot double door box cars. These cars were purchased exclusively for shipping between Cochrane and Moosonee. Also in the mix are some 50 foot single door models. These ribsided box cars also have their own classification series utilizing "2800" unlike their smooth side counterparts the "2700's". Here we see number 2804 at Cochrane Yard after arriving from it's first revenue run to Moosonee.
