VIA Press Release. There was a CN derailment "near Villeroy, Quebec" (east of Trois Rivieres, Quebec) that has interrupted all VIA Rail service east of there. The Ocean and Chaleur have been interrupted and alternate transport is being arranged. The press release says that train 614 will leave Montreal tomorrow, January 2 at 5 AM.
From the Montreal Gazette:
About 70 homes were evacuated after freight cars derailed late Wednesday night on the Canadian National railway tracks at Villeroy, halfway between Drummondville and Quebec City. Most of the 32 freight cars that jumped the tracks were empty, but one wagon struck a nearby propane reservoir, raising fears of an explosion.
The cause of the derailment is not yet known, a CN spokesperson said.
Work on the line is expected to disrupt train traffic today between Montreal and Quebec, he said.
Most residents who had been evacuated returned to their homes early Thursday morning.
No one was injured in the train derailment.
Theoretically, they could detour over MM&A and NBSR through Maine, but that is not going to happen.
