Nearly three months after a landslide triggered a train derailment that killed engineer Enrick Gagnon, the locomotive was pulled from the frigid river near Sept-Îles, Que.

The Transportation Safety Board, which is investigating the Nov. 6 incident, released new photos taken Feb. 18 of the locomotive being lifted from the Moise River by crane. 

The train's lone engineer, Enrick Gagnon, 45, died in accident. His body was recovered by divers in November, but the locomotive was left submerged. 

The train was hauling 240 empty cars and three locomotives at the time.
