Polar Bear Express
Polar Bear Express information
This whistle-stop train is the only way to reach the remote communities of Moosonee and Moose Factory. It departs Cochrane in the morning, arriving in the afternoon, before turning around. The assortment of passengers is a sight in itself: locals, trappers, biologists, geologists, tourists, anglers and paddlers. It's a five-hour trip each way, so if you return the same day you'll only have time for a short visit. From September to June, the train is commonly known as the Little Bear.
