Whenever the Ontario Northland comes to mind I think Chevrons, boxcars and those uniquely stylized flanger signs. This image checks those boxes. It's nearing the end of the day on Monday, October 4, 2010 and 414's crew is lifting 27 AbitibiBowater paper loads off the Iroquois Falls Subdvision. When the crew left Englehart that morning they only had the solo SD75i 2100 and a paltry 8 cars (7 destined for Iroquois Falls). Leaving Cochrane in the evening with a much larger train and veteran SD40-2 1737 added for the influx of southbound tonnage the train will be over 70 cars ex "Welsh" (Porquis Junction). This may seem like a lot of traffic but it's just a backlog of traffic due to service reductions following the 2008 recession. ONR hadn't visited in a number of days as 213/414's crew would only make the run north to Cochrane twice a week. AbitibiBowater later restructured into todays "Resolute Forest Products" and shuttered the mill in late 2014.
