FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" SEPTEMBER 22, 2013
The gang at the Freight Projects division at North Bay Shops have the responsibility of taking ideas funneled down from upper management and turning them into a practical reality. One of the classic examples of the determination set forth by Freight Projects was captured at Cochrane's North Yard September 21st. Say hello to ONT 2098, a modernized fuel tender. The 2098 was initially a 40 foot wooden deck flat car utilized by Maintenance of Way. The flat car has been completely beefed up, plenty of extra safety features added, and a brand new container installed which houses a huge fuel tank and the pump system required to transfer that fuel. Great job everyone, and thanks to Chris for the background info.
