Gaspe Line Partial Closure

A portion of the Gaspé line between Chandler and Gaspé has been closed for bridge work. The Grand River-Pabos bridge needs about $650,000 of work done. It is estimated that it may take up to six weeks to complete the work. During this time, the VIA Rail train will turn at New Carlisle and passengers will be bused the remainder of the distance.

Let's hope the work is done quickly so the Chaleur can get back to its full route.

PS - sorry for the gap in posting. I was in Tennessee again and did not have any spare time for the blog. I'm back now.
