FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" APRIL 18, 2005

April 18th's "Pic of the Day" comes from the west end of Kapuskasing's East Yard as Cochrane Shops' Crews with the assistance of a huge mobile crane from Hearst handle the rerailing of 3 loaded CN cars which wound up on the ground (or in the case of those covered gondolas "in" the ground) April 17th during routine switching by 313

As you can see by the mess of rail, the west end of the East Yard was completely blocked by the derailment. Luckily the yard's 1 Track was still useable providing a needed stretch of rail for Shops Crews to lift the cars onto during the rerailing process.

Thankfully there were no injuries in the derailment.
