SUDBURY, ON , Sept. 11, 2020 (Local News) -After more than years of chronic uncertainty, Huron Central Railway’s short-line freight service between Sault Ste. Marie and Sudbury might finally derail.
Genesee & Wyoming Canada Inc., HCR’s Montreal-based parent company, announced this week that it will cease operations by the end of the year because it has not been able to secure $40 million in government funding to rehabilitate the 288-km line.
Although this isn’t the first time the company has anticipated closure, GWCI President Rick McLellan said that the formal process required to cease operations “cannot be delayed any longer.”
