Dan Beck was starting his journey to Timmins yesterday when the Polar Bear Express passenger train derailed.
“We were about an hour into the train ride,” he recalled. “I noticed we were going . . . a little faster than normal. And then all of a sudden we felt at least three or four jerks on the car, I guess it felt like a hard stop when something tries to stop because the cars are all connected, like a chain reaction.”
