The car brakes are being applied, the bell is ringing, and the locals gather as we approach Moosonee Station aboard GP38-2 1808 leading September 2, 2002's northbound Polar Bear Express. I learned this trip that this section of track is a little sloped which means you really have to watch your braking especially if your heavy APU (Auxilary Power Unit) is at the other end of the consist.
