FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" JULY 28, 2014
While attending the annual Ontario Northland Railway Historical & Technical Society 2014 Convention held July 24th, 25th, and 26th in North Bay, the members and myself were treated to a very top notch tour of Ontario Northland's North Bay operations on July 25th. Although it was just a pre-tour rumour, chances were good that we may witness the rare "Hoffman". Apparently, other "Hoffman" spotters say that if you hang around GP38-2 1805, chances are good you'll be able to photograph the "Hoffman". True to form, the "Hoffman" was spotted and photographed in it's natural habitat during our tour! All kidding aside, here is Shops' Support Worker James Hoffman, a long time supporter of onrgallery.com and friend, smiling for the camera from the rear pilot of his all time favourite locomotive 1805 during our great tour. A huge Thanks to the folks at Ontario Northland for the wonderful tour and the barbecue immediately following it!
