This engine is for the bird(s). Approximately a year after being abandoned here, MMA 8583 and a short train are still in Ste-Sabine, Quebec. The reason for this is the poor condition of the track, which led to Transport Canada embargoing the line, and also led to a car derailing slightly further north, thus cutting off the only way this train could be moved by rail. A small bird can be seen perched on the guardrail at right. For a closeup of the nose last winter, click here.
