FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" JULY 11, 2007
July 11th's "Pic of the Day" features yet another look at the 421 "Super Bear" as seen rolling out of the CN side of Cochrane Yard July 4th. This photo gives you a general idea of what the head end freight consist of a typical Polar Bear Express will look like. So far, the arrangement looks pretty much like this, with the Canoe Car being first up serving as a "buffer" between the power and the chain cars. Behind the Chain Cars is Baggage 413, ONR's new northbound Mail Car. You can see a 2800 series box car coupled up behind the baggage car. On this particular day, that box car would be designated as the mail car with 413 being brought down to the Shop Rip. The "southend" consist of the Polar Bear will include a baggage car (412), the Express Freight Car, and the ATV/Skidoo Car.
