It's June 2004 at Cochrane Yard. 213 rolls in this afternoon with the first of the 9 ex-BC Rail Dinner Train cars purchased by ONR a few months earlier. This Bar car is named (By BC Rail) The Rainbow. It now runs under the ONT number 903. This car was built in 1937 for the Santa Fe Railroad's "Super Chief". The plan for this car will be turn The Rainbow into a "Cree Cultural Car" featuring displays and artifacts pertaining to the local First Nations. If all goes well, it will see regular Polar Bear Express trips in 2005.
