A trainload of iron ore at a Canadian National station in Eastern Canada en-route from an emergency war mining project to the steel mills at Sydney, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, where it is made into plates for ships, rails, billets for guns, tanks, shells, bombs and other war weapons. These cars have a capacity of sixty-five tons but due to the weight of the ore a full load only fills half a car.
