2007 was indeed another busy year for Ontario Northland. But, unfortunately I wasn't around for a lot of it. However, some of the interesting things that occured this year included the cancellation of Cochrane to Moosonee "Little Bear" service, replaced with a year round "Polar Bear Express" service. A new tri-weekly freight service (419-620) was also introduced to the north line to help with potential "Polar Bear Express" congestion problems with freight. A new Hydro One transformer is shipped by rail to Fraserdale. The NHL's Rocket Richard Trophy visits Moosonee courtesy of San Jose Sharks' Jonathon Cheechoo. The Onakawana Business car moves to Cochrane, and Ontario Northland rebuilds their "Reefers" .
