FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" JUNE 1, 2012
Rolling into Cochrane Yard May 31st as part of the consist of 514 are these 2 dimensional loads picked up from the CN at Hearst. These loads are to be unloaded at Cochrane and shipped by road to the Detour Gold Mine located northeast of here. Big Thanks to Shawn Mills and Jeff Glinski for the 'heads up'. :)
After some digging and feedback received, I later found out that all of these parts are for a Caterpillar 7495 CAT rope shovel belonging to Detour Gold. These things are massive and take approximately 3 months to assemble. Thanks to Kevin Murphy for the assistance. :)
