With the use of our Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs), we were able to find the Canadian Pacific DC10 Model Locomotive CP694, resting on the bottom of Lake Superior, in Ontario, Canada. In July, 2016, with initial coordinate information, we were able to locate the train and capture images documenting its current state. The difficulty with this find was searching through the boulders surrounding the train.
This is a heart-wrenching story about a father in search of recovery of his son's body after a drowning accident, in the Mississippi River.
Thanks to the Star Tribune for the excellent story telling, and professionalism in its presentation.
This Outlook clip is a feature shown on the British Broadcast Corporation (BBC) World Service website about the historic Canadian Pacific DC10 Model Locomotive CP694 in the bottom of Lake Superior.
The accident happened on June 10, 1910 when a boulder that had fallen onto the track caused the train to derail from the cliffside track, then sink into the bay of the Great Lake at a depth of 250 feet. Three perished including a fireman, engineer and breakman.
