FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" MARCH 11, 2014
Here's a photo captured March 5th of 2 of Ontario Northland's new fuel tenders at Cochrane Yard. Now these things are very interesting. 2098 (the 2nd fuel tender in this photo) was put into service in 2013 (see a photo here) as a rolling gas station for Gang 91. 1663 was put into service in early 2014. Thanks to some great rebuild work to the flat cars by North Bay Shops and the installation of brand new Transtainer Transportable ISO Containers, these 2 cars are now capable of not only carrying up to 21000 litres, but pumping fuel anywhere along the right of way. In fact, these cars played a vital role in supplying fuel to an Ontera (Ontario Northland Telecommunications Company) project north of Moosonee this winter. Have these special cars earned their keep at Ontario Northland? You bet they have!
