CanadaEast is reporting that the Port of Dalhousie and CN have come to an agreement to retain the Dalhousie railway subdivision.
You may remember that the last Dalhousie local ran in the summer of 2008, shortly after the last customer closed. The line was offered for sale in June 2009.
The agreement between the Port and CN is confidential but Port manager Brian Hyslop said "if we exercise the options in there, we have rail service for the next 21 years."
The Port has leased the line, but CN will operate and maintain it.
Good news. The next task is for the Port to get some traffic onto the line to justify their investment.
