GM’s Scratch and Dent Sale

Chevy’s Oshawa, Ontario Truck Plant

New position open in Oshawa for a Dentician



This incident happened in the Oshawa CP Rail yard which ships out GM vehicles.
One of the railcar men, who attaches and detaches the car haulers, accidentally
unhooked a set of train cars without having the brakes applied.
The Oshawa rail yard has a slight incline to it, so when the set of cars was
unhooked from the engine, it started to roll down the hill. It smashed through
the stop block, and then through the fence - continuing into the parking lot
where GM stores the new vehicles that come off the line.
Over 300 vehicles were damaged.
