ST. JOHN, NB, April 26, 2013 (CBC) -Frustration is growing among saw mill and pulp mill owners as a Canadian National rail car shortage is forcing companies to find alternate ways to ship lumber products.

Just as the lumber industry in the province begins to bounce-back due to a more stable homebuilding sector in the U.S., several northern New Brunswick mills have been forced to pay thousands of extra dollars every week to ship lumber to the U.S. by truck due to a shortage in CN rail cars.
