The westbound Huron Central freight is seen approaching McKerrow with HCRY GP40-3 3802, HCRY RM-1 802, QGRY GP38 2008 and HCRY GP40-2LW 3013 hauling 131 cars. The "above average" length of this freight was due to G&W shuttering operations in the weeks prior as parent company Genesee and Wyoming were looking for a handout from the government in the range of $30 million to upgrade and upkeep the tracks. With terms agreed to, Huron Central gathered up many of the cars dwelling in Sudbury and set off down the Webbwood Sub. After a couple of switching moves at McKerrow the crew will head south down the last remnants of the Little Current Sub to service the pulp and paper mill in Espanola.
