FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" DECEMBER 24, 2011
It's Christmas Eve, and while families and friends gather to celebrate the Holiday Season, ONR Crews will be probably busy with SD75I 2103 and 3 empty plug door box cars. December 23rd's northbound 213 came to an abrupt halt at the south switch into Iroquois Falls Yard as 2103 and the first box car wound up on the ground. Since 213's entire consist was left on the mainline at Porquis Junction, and the remaining empties that were on their way to Iroquois Falls were blocking a crossing, a Crew was ordered out of Cochrane to clear the main and lift the empties on this consist and return them to Porquis Junction. There were no injuries in the mishap and the northbound 221 Northlander was only held up by approximately 15 minutes.
Also, welcome to the new and improved Pic of the Day. Starting today, images will now be 900 pixels wide as opposed to the usual 700 pixels. Hope you like the new format, and Merry Christmas Everyone!
