It's October 2005 at Cochrane Yard. Things are gonna boom here over the next few months as DeBeers teams up with Amec/CN to begin the haulage of equipment and materials via ONR trackage to Moosonee enroute to their new diamond mine which is located at Attawapiskat. Seen here is a huge Grove mobile crane which will be utilized at Moosonee to off-load equipment arriving at a newly built siding specifically built at Moosonee for the Victor Diamond Mine project. Once the hundreds of containers, portable office trailers, generators, fuel, and other heavy and dimmensional loads are unloaded, they are then reloaded onto tractor trailers. These tractor trailers will then carry the big loads for the final leg of the journey to the minesite over a specially built ice road.
