It was a busy day on the 421 Little Bear's Snowmobile Car (the 40 foot boxcar seen on the end of this consist) on this snowy day in February 2005 as a huge group of snowmobilers touring Northeastern Ontario's OFSC Trail System wait to board the train in order to take advantage of the far north's snowmobiling experiences. With the huge number of machines making the trip to Moosonee, 3 helpers in the form of 2800 series 50 foot double door box cars are put into service to take on the task at hand of hauling these machines. Thanks to some nifty planning by Cochrane Yard Management, the Yard's Icehouse Track is temporarily being utilized in this photo as a "Snowmobile Loading Track".
