CN 148 Returns

Trains CN 148/149 used to run between Chicago and Halifax. They were renumbered to CN 122/123 in 2007 for a short time until they were cancelled.

There is a longshoremen's strike at the Port of Montreal that is affecting container handling. News reports say that container ships are being diverted to Halifax.

Word has it that there will be two CN Q148 trains running in the Maritimes. The first is rumoured to depart Edmundston after 6 AM and depart Moncton around noon, with the second departing Edmundston after 3 PM.

This should only last until the strike is over, but it will provide some extra action for Maritime railfans.
