FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" JULY 4, 2007
Say hello to the "Excursion" version of the "Super Bear". This is a photo captured July 4th just south of the Cochrane Station platform as 421 Head End Brakeman Phil protects the train's head end as the consist, which includes the canoe car (primarily used as a buffer at this point), chain cars, mail car, ski-doo car, express car, 2 diners, a snack car, a bar car, a "kiddie car" (the Twilight's new job... long story), the baggage car, and approximately 7 coaches, slowly rolls up the platform for boarding. B.O.'d for today's trip is the Otter Rapids Dome Car and the 413 Mail car (replaced by a 2800 box car). It was a somewhat speedy boarding process with the 421 booking out with a 0908 departure time.
