As luck would have it, my dad’s car broke down a couple of weeks ago as we investigated two “refer” rail cars on a seldom used siding at Dominion Produce in Bradford right near the Go Station. What a pain, tow truck drivers and all. It turned out to be a late night after what should have been an outing of discovery about the Bradford Veggie Train. Having decided to contact Dominion Produce directly we discovered that the “Veggie Train” brings carrots from California during the late winter and early spring. This happened to be one of those times…early June. When they run out of stored material from the previous fall’s harvest from Ontario, they call up California and subsequently receive two car loads of carrots which are washed and bagged (5 or 10 lb bags). Then it’s off to A&P/Dominion, Loblaws, IGA and so on. Having heard the horns at 4:00 AM in the morning, it was told to us that CN brings up the cars late at night, they are unloaded the next day and then CN picks up the cars the next night and takes them back to the MacMillan yard. It all happens at night. Bummer! There is no schedule. It is only as needed and all arranged by e-mail with CN. Another mystery solved!
