FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" NOVEMBER 7, 2014
November 7th was a pretty busy day at good ol' Cochrane Yard as CN Track Evaluation Budd Car 1501 once again arrives onto Ontario Northland right of way on November 6th from Hearst. This particular trip is a little different however as 1501 is actually on the property to test track rather than simply taking advantage of the shortcut Ontario Northland provides between Hearst and Noranda, Quebec (2 transfer points between the ONR and CN). Due to the fact that CP Rail announced this year that they will no longer test track for other railroads, CN will now be hired to perform the testing of Ontario Northland's right of way. The Budd Car (RDC) is seen here on Cochrane Yard's Oil Spur moments before her departure for Moosonee and a testing of the Island Falls Subdivision.
