Caption: Perhaps it is no surprise to those who take an interest in industrial operations in Niagara area that the Resolute Forest Products mill in Thorold South has now shut down. This plant had been around over 100 years under a variety of names. The bad news of closure and 100+ employees out of work (should we thank Wynne?) prompted me to dig up an old scene similar to Steve Hosts' popular recent submission, as we just might never see the likes of rail operations here again. Pushing a string of cars into the plant is QOPC2, (Quebec-Ontario Paper Company) former CN 7943, originally 7243. Not long after this photo was taken the plant changed names again and became 'QUNO'.
