VIA Detouring

Due to the derailment of the last 5 cars of VIA 15 a little west of Matapedia, VIA 14 and 15 detoured over CN on Thursday. I don't know if VIA will detour again on Friday.

The combined Ocean-Chaleur train had to go to Moncton on the Napadogan subdivision. Wendell Lemon reported that VIA 14 left Moncton at 13:45 with VIA 6400, 6403 and 6401. The train had 5 Budd cars (the Chaleur) and 13 Renaissance cars (the Ocean).

I believe the last time VIA detoured on the Napadogan sub was July 2006, but I could be wrong.
