New Train Numbers
Former train 587 on the Nepisiguit Subdivision
I'm told that the train numbers on the former NBEC and CFMG territories are going to change. The new trains are rumoured to be:
L56011 Rivière-du-Loup - L'Isle Verte switcher 08h30
L56111 Mont-Joli switcher 17h30
L56211 Mont-Joli - Matane 11h00
L56311 Campbellton - Dalhousie switcher 07h00
L56411 Campbellton - Gaspè 00h01
L56511 Bathurst - Brunswick Mines (daily except Friday - Saturday) 20h00
L56611 Bathurst - Gloucester Jct?? (daily except Saturday) 14h00
L56711 Bathurst local (Monday - Friday) 07h30
L56811 Miramichi switcher 14h00
The times given are the "on duty" times. All trains daily except where noted.
To map to the old NBEC train numbers:
Train 590 -> 563 (time essentially the same)
Train 586 -> 565 (later than before)
Train 587 -> 566 (later than before)
Train 597 -> 567 (time essentially the same)
Train 580 -> 568 (same time)
I'm going to guess that train 566 is actually the Bathurst - Belledune turn.
I understand trains 402 and 403 will retain their numbers.
