Charlevoix Railway Sold

Erick Pelletier reported on AtlanticRails that the Chemin de fer de Charlevoix (CFC), aka the Charlevoix Railway, has been sold to Groupe le Massif, a businessman who already owns a ski mountain in Petite-Rivière-Saint-François. It seems he will operate a tourist train over the line, while CN will operate the existing freight operation. CN and Le Massif will jointly pay for track upgrades.

That makes zero railways held by the Quebec Railway Corporation.

Do you know you bought the Sydney Coal Railway operation? It was also owned by the Quebec Railway Company wasn't it?
