FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" MARCH 9, 2013
Say hello to Ontario Northland's rendition of "March Madness". It's the Friday before March Break (March 8th). The schools are out and hundreds upon hundreds of folks from communities north of Cochrane who can't risk driving on a seasonal ice road or aren't wealthy enough to spend thousands on airfare are heading south for countless reasons which include making supply runs, visiting family, or participating in hockey tournaments. The only option left for those without a dependable vehicle or a hefty amount of cash is to ride the 622 Polar Bear Express to Cochrane. Here we catch 421 Polar Bear crew members Mark and Wayne lifting chain cars and the daily mail car from the north yard at Cochrane making their way to the Bear's coach consist on the main.
