Remarks & Notes 
The ArcelorMittal Quebec Cartier Mining Corp. runs a weekly passenger train from Port Cartier to Mount Wright, Quebec, servicing all of the online camps and the Fire Lake raw ore mine as well as the Mount Wright processing plant. The train takes fresh workers for their 'week on' of work in the remote wilderness, while picking up workers that are finishing their week. The train consists of two storage/food service boxcars and a trio of ex-New Jersey Transit passenger coaches. AMMC SD70ACe #9003 leads the 5-car train - symbol P-31 (passenger - 31st train - 31st week of year) across the Hydro-Quebec Hart-Jaune Dam on Petit-Lac-Manicouagan at 0600 hrs on August 4, as it prepares to make its next stop at Camp Love on the way south to Port Cartier. Future photos from this location are in doubt as the only access bridge to the location is now listed as out of service and is falling into disrepair without traffic to require its upgrading. Hydro-Quebec has its own private access that requires security clearance and moving through a gated secure access road.
