  • Recent heavy rains have impacted CN operations in Western Canada. A number of branch lines suspended operations on Sunday, June 29 and have since resumed at least partial operations. The Cromer line partially reopened on Sunday, July 06. Both the Cromer and the Quappelle lines are scheduled to resume full operations on Monday, July 07. In the interim, local service to customers located along these branch lines may continue to encounter some delays. CN continues to keep a close watch on conditions in southern Saskatchewan and southwestern Manitoba and will continue to respond as required. 

  • Speed restrictions remain in effect along the Sprague and Fort Frances subdivisions. As a result, trains running between Winnipeg, MB, and our Ranier, MN, border crossing are operating with some delays. 
  • We will post further information on the State of the Railroad web page as soon as it becomes available.
 If you are concerned about specific shipments, we encourage you to contact your Service Delivery Representative by dialing 1-866-926-7245 or to use your regular channels in order to obtain the details you require.
