FEATURED PIC OF THE DAY SEPTEMBER 13, 2008

September 13th's "Pic of the Day" comes from Cochrane Yard's "Shed 2" Track, where we see Ontario Northland's "IB" fleet undergoing some modifications. As you can see on ONT 261, New Carrier "Solara" heaters are replacing the circa 1970's alcohol undersling heating systems on the 3 car ex-CN insulated car fleet. Solara is the trailer heating system specially designed to protect cargo transported in extreme low-ambient climates. It protects by maintaining cargo above a specified minimum temperature. Solara delivers a full 30,000 Btuh (8,792 watts) of heat at -20F (-29C) ambient-and 3,200 CFM (5,437 m3/h) of airflow-for premiem cargo protection in today's longer, wider thinwall trailers, and boxcars (in ONR's case), even with multiple door openings.
And a "Happy Birthday" goes out to Jonathon Corley :)
