The CBC is reporting that J.D. Irving's Deersdale mill is closing indefinitely. JDI says they do not have enough wood to supply the mill. This is a real shame and bad news for the 73 people who will be laid off.
It's bad news for CN too, who lose another customer on the Napadogan subdivision. There are precious few customers left between Edmundston and Moncton.
I was at Deersdale once, back in August 2007 when I shot CN 306 there... back when there was a CN 306.
