Little Obie, a scale model of a CN locomotive, comes with a flatcar and caboose. The brainchild of former employee Paul Rose, Little Obie helps educate kids about the dangers of playing near the railroad tracks — in a fun and informative way. Little Obie was named after Donald R. Obie Bryant, Safety Director of I.C. Johnson Yard in Memphis.
To help promote rail safety to kids, CN is committed to ensuring that Little Obie can stop at events across Canada and the U.S. If you think Little Obie could make a difference at your event, please contact Mark Schmale in the United States or use our online request form for Little Obie in Canada.
We would be delighted to review each request.
