It's August 2005 and the DeBeer's Victor Diamond Mine project is moving one step closer to reality as 89 foot flats filled with Atco's, containers, and equipment belonging to the Vallard Company are marshalled into the 421 Little Bear's consist for the journey north. Vallard is a Contractor hired to build a hydro pole line from Attawapiskat (where the mine is) to Otter Rapids Power Dam where the mine's power will be fed from.
