“The Monster” was noted in a Canadian geology publication. Local residents saw the VC-22 Sno-Freighter abandoned for many years. It’s awesome size led to the term “The Monster.” The resulting name led to geologic formations known as “Monster Syncline” and “Monster Formation” and also the “Monster River.”

The LCC-1 Sno-Train also received a similar and endearing name. Because of it’s size and large wheels, local residents referred to the Sno-Train as the “Snow Monster.” Read the other names associated with the Sno-Train.
