FEATURED "PIC OF THE DAY" DECEMBER 6, 2005
It's a snowy (quite "Christmasy" actually) December 6th morning at Cochrane Shops as Shops' Staff and Management along with folks from Signals, Cochrane's Section, and other volunteers get together to hold Cochrane's own Special Santa Claus Express. The initial reason for the creation of this special train is to allow kids under 4 years of age along with their parents and/or caregivers, who are not permitted to ride the regular Santa Claus Expresses due to train ride length and safety concerns, a chance to experience what the older kids do, by hopping on a train to pick up Santa. The ride is of course quite shorter than your typical Santa Claus Express with this consist operating only between the north end and south end Shop switches. In this photo we see some of the over 100 people who rode the train this morning making their way on board under the watchful eyes of Shops Staff.
