Could this be what the hold is?

Got this message from a friend of mine...

This incident happened in the Oshawa CP Rail yard
which ships out the 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 and continued into the parking lot where GM stores the new vehicles that come off the line.

Over 300 vehicles were damaged.


Not sure if this has anything to do with "cars on hold" but I hope not!

I do not believe a rail accident 2 1/2 years ago is causing a production holdup on the Z28 which hasn't been announced, let alone begun production
