Ontario Northland is to be featured in a new Discovery series

The first episode featured Moosonee resident George Ross, who relies on Ontario Northland to deliver firewood to customers in Moose Factory.

Ontario Northland is featured on Discovery’s new original Canadian series Rocky Mountain Railroad.

The eight-part series premiered last week on Discovery and will tell the stories of railroad crews battling tough winter weather and rough terrain to keep Canada’s critical freight and passenger trains moving.

Upcoming episodes will feature the Polar Bear Habitat, Moose Factory’s High Ridge singers, hockey teams travelling to the Little Native Hockey League tournament, and the delivery of modular homes to remote communities on the James Bay Coast.
