The End of Eastern Rail Services

Today Eastern Rail Services, the shops at Campbellton, shut down. ERS performed locomotive and car repair work out of the facility. Eight people were laid off.

Six carmen will be working out of the building to support CN's operations through Campbellton, but the days of locomotive repair are over... at least for now. The last time the shops were closed were in 1988 when CN sold the facility to the Quebec Railway Corporation.

The five RTCs will be done on May 28.

Best of luck to the former ERS employees.
