Good morning.
Does anybody know why The Ocean #15 is showing 15:28:00 Late!!!
Looks like she 22minutes late into Truro and didn't leave till 21:59 !!!
That's over 7 hours late.
Just curious, does anybody know why?
Thank you...

One of the crew members was seriously injured. https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/nova-sco ... -1.4918834" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
A 63-year-old man is in hospital with life-threatening injuries after being hit by a train in Truro, N.S.
Chief Dave MacNeil of the Truro Police Service said the incident happened just before 3 p.m. on Friday at the train station in Truro.
As a Via Rail passenger train was slowing at the station, the man, who works for Via, went to step off the train onto the platform.
MacNeil said police are still investigating but it appears the man fell between the train and the platform.

The train disappeared off the tracking system and it still shows "further information is unavailable." The latest posted ETA for Montreal was 01:00 today.
And now today's 15 is canceled. It derailed (no passengers aboard) while being turned prior to backing into the Halifax Station.
