Question about about news cars

Post by alexandre181 » Tue Apr 10, 2012 8:27 pm

Hello

(I'm not sure to took the good topic for my questions?)

On the last week, I seen in front of my house on the Highway 20 in Province of Quebec lot of little black gondolas mark as ''AMMC'' I looked on the Canadian trackside guide on the Mark part to see what this? I don't found this compagny name.

So I'd like to know why these cars on ship by truck and not by rail?
What's this company (AMMC)?
And, Where these cars are going to?

I hope someone knows information about that and will be able to help me!
I joint a picture to you to see the car.(sorry for pool picture quality, weather was bad...)
Thank you

Alexandre

possible the new G&W ore operations around Labrador would be my guess.
