And for those of you who missed it on the ONR website, that *is* the ONR's newest locomotive paintscheme shown on the website. "Arrow" or "Point" I guess. On the positive note, they dropped that silly "O.N. Rail" Moniker, and went traditional with "Ontario Northland" on the side of the long hood. On the negative note, that's a LOT of yellow. The scheme looks better on the 1809, the GP38-2 that has been painted, where the white arrow is right behind the cab.
Anyone want to compare the late 1970's early 80's British Rail paintscheme and this current ONR scheme? I think they may be very close!

If you're interested, you can see some pretty good in-house video about the ONR here:

I guess they got over 10cm of snow yesterday up at Kapuskasing, that would certainly help add to the Christmas spirit!

To quote Beavis and Butthead, "that video totally kicks a__!" I happened upon the Christmas train link while looking at the schedules for making a circle trip from Toronto to Moosonee on the train and back by bus to Timmins and Sudbury next Fall. I have never rode the Ontario Northland passenger trains but did ride an Ontario Northland bus from Sudbury to Toronto years ago on Hwy 69.
