Train delay forces frigid wait on Sudbury winter campers
An outdoor winter camping adventure, led by a Sudbury couple, continues on as the group awaits a delayed train.
Dave Marrone and his wife Kielyn operate Lure of the North, a company that focuses on camping and wilderness travel.
The pair, along with several other participants, went out on a two-week camping adventure near Missinaibi Lake.
However, they are now waiting for a delayed train, the Budd Car, to bring them out of the wilderness.
“Everyone is safe [and] everyone is healthy,” Marrone said, speaking on CBC Radio’s Up North via satellite phone.
Marrone said the crew was supposed to be picked up on Friday, but are now hoping for early Tuesday morning.
In an e-mail, Via Rail, the company that offers the Budd Car, said the train did run on Friday, so they company is unsure why the group was not picked up.
