Spurs used to be lined up all along the first half mile section of the Island Falls Sub in the west end of Cochrane. Nowadays, the only spur left belongs to the local Brewer's Retail outlet who ship carloads of beer north. GP9 1602 is seen here running full throttle to make it up the steep grade to the main after dropping an empty insulated box car (ONT 261) at the spur June 2002.
