Big Announcement Tuesday?
There is supposed to be a big announcement in McAdam on Tuesday at 10 AM. The rumour is that the NB Southern line from Saint John to Brownville is to be upgraded to 130 lb. rail. I'm told the premier, the Irvings, MP Greg Thompson and others will be there. I assume there must be some provincial and/or federal investment for the politicians to be present.
The yard has been spruced up, with new signage, crushed rock, and even special ties for a ceremonial spike driving.
