What happened to the "Ocean #15" last night after she left "Matapedia" 3 minutes late and lost almost 11:45 leaving "Causapscal" at 10:55 this morning!!!???
She is scheduled to arrive in Montreal at 23:30 tonight ! ?
I don't mind being on late trains but this may be a little much???
Can anybody provide any info on what happened ??? :wink: :-D

Certainly not the norm for the Ocean which usually runs on time or very close......but a message on the Can-Pass-Rail Group is reporting there were wheel-slip issues with engine # 6445 not loading.

-#15 Backed up to Clark Brook and waited for an engine from #14.
-Delayed again at Mont Joli with engine issues.
-Rcrewed at Ste Florence (Original crew expired)
-Wait for meet at St. Andre (Jct with the NTR freight main from the Maritimes)
-Recrewed at LaPocatiere
-Medical Emergency at St. Charles and met by paramedics at route #279 crossing.

(BTW…..this was #15 that left Halifax on Friday the 13th!!)
