Playing in the sand at the Cochrane station, left from years of engines struggling to grip slick, slippery and icy rails during departure from the Cochrane station. Exploring the world he's in and enjoying the small beach created between the platform and rails a rumble approaches to the east. He looks up. A roar from Ontario Northland GP38-2's 1806 and 1809 as the Engineer increases the throttle to pull 4 flatbeads loaded with vehicles out of the ramp track and onto the main. The bell starts ringing to warn the awaiting passengers on the platform of the train's approaching presence. Startled, the boy in the picture runs to his parents side. In minutes the train will pull up to the station and into position to start loading the almost 300 people standing around to board for Moosonee. Thanksgiving Monday is a busy day for the northbound Polar Bear Express.
