First order of business was to move another half dozen cars that had not derailed. To do this, since the track was blocked for locomotives, they called in this monster Cat 980M from Dexter/Municipal Contracting. It was last seen doing snow clearing in Halifax this winter, but it is not normally allowed on the streets due to its size.
The Cat was brought in by this Western Star from Dexter's large fleet.
This locally based Freightliner hi-railer (CN 176403) was on the scene early on.
Overnight this CN hi-rail crane truck arrived from Moncton. Its truly impressive crane boom was not enough to lift the loaded cars.[see post script]
A number of miscellaneous CN vehicles were also on scene, several of then hi-railers:
GMC Yukon hi-railer.
and some more Fords.
For those who need to know, the string of cars was being hauled out of the HIT Terminal by yard engines 9410 and 9486, both GMD GP40s.
If the mighty Peterbilt crane looks vaguely familiar, it has been shown here before, but in its previous "life".
Originally built as a Brute 150, it was recently rebuilt in the US and given a Peterbilt cab, but underneath all that it is still a Brute 150.
Since it was rebuilt it has been given a new number: CN074778.
