The 1407 "Moose River" Dining Car recieves her day's load for The Polar Bear at Cochrane's Coach Yard August 2000. The "Moose River" began her life under CN ownership making the transition to VIA Rail when the Federal Government took over National Passenger Rail Service. Ontario Northland purchased this car from VIA in 1986. Since this photo was taken, "The Moose River" has since retired due to a cracked frame. The following 2001 Polar Bear Express Season utilized Dining Car 1409 to handle meal services.
