The Michael Trapper Memorial Gathering is an annual hockey tournament held at Moosonee every year. Scheduling of the Little Bear poses a problem of for participating teams returning south after the tournament since the only southbound train after Saturday is the following Tuesday. Enter the "Michael Trapper" train. A special train paid for by the organisers of the tournament which will deadhead to Moosonee, load up the hockey teams and return south to Cochrane. Here we see the special train being made up at Cochrane's Coach Yard March 2004. The Baggage Car (412) is placed in the consist to accomodate the tons of hockey equipment needing to head south.
