Canadian National Railway Confirms Reopening of Southern B.C. Corridor

The Canadian National Railway Co. (CN) confirmed today (12-6-21) that their trains are once again moving in the southern British Columbia corridor, following the third flooding event in two weeks to hit the region. The CN says service resumed Sunday after crews worked around the clock on the Vancouver-Kamloops corridor, which was first cut by mudslides and washouts amid torrential rain in mid-November.

In an email, CN spokesperson Jonathan Abecassis said, “CN crews will continue to monitor both the rail infrastructure as well as the terrain over the coming days and weeks.”

The repaired lines will also allow Canadian Pacific Railway Ltd. (CP), which shares tracks with CN through part of the Fraser Valley, to boost its shipments as well.
