Canada, Quebec to help four small roads fund trackwork
Dated: Tuesday, May 03, 2005
The governments of Canada and Quebec are helping four short lines in the province fund infrastructure improvement projects over the next five years. Each government body will provide $23.9 million while Chemin de fer de la Matapédia et du Golfe Inc., Québec Gatineau Railway, St. Lawrence and Atlantic Railway, and Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd. will fund a total of $31.9 million.

The short lines plan to replace more than 600 miles of track, install 35 million ties, and improve facilities and bridges. The roads also plan to announce an intermodal project at a later date.

Officials at the short lines are pleased that both levels of government recognized the importance of short-line infrastructure, said Mario Brault, president of the Québec Gatineau, and St. Lawrence and Atlantic railways, in a prepared statement.

Short lines annually move about 30 percent (1.5 million carloads) of the freight shipped in Canada.

Montreal Maine & Atlantic Railway preps for remote controls, winter weather
Dated: Monday, December 13, 2004
During the past few months, Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd. (MMA) has been in preparation mode on two counts: for upcoming winter weather and incoming remote-control locomotives (RCLs).

The 745-mile regional — which operates track in Maine, Vermont, New Brunswick and Quebec — plans to implement RCLs for yard operations and some industrial switching, according to the railroad's fall newsletter.

"The person on the ground can actually see the speed of cars coming together to be coupled and can control the speed right from the point of impact," said MMA Vice President of Transportation John Scott.

MMA officials believe the railroad will gain productivity and safety benefits from remote controls. To ensure safety, workers will be required to follow all existing rules when operating RCLs.

"If we have to go over a road crossing, we will have a person protecting traffic just as we do now," said Scott.

Montreal, Maine & Atlantic posts - and prepares for more - traffic growth
Dated: Monday, June 14, 2004
If second-quarter traffic figures are as good as first-quarter data, Montreal, Maine & Atlantic Railway Ltd.'s (MMA) rough start in early 2003 because of a major shipper's bankruptcy will be a distant memory.

Intermodal traffic was key to first-quarter gains. Intermodal loads rose 80 percent compared with first-quarter 2003 data because of a new dedicated train service between St. John, Maine, and Farnham, Quebec, and the reopening of a terminal in Presque Isle, Maine, according to MMA's spring newsletter.

In addition, roundwood, lumber and paper moves increased 48 percent, 27 percent and 24 percent, respectively, compared with similar 2003 data.

Lumber traffic has been driven by increasing southeastern demand for eastern spruce, pine and fir, while paper traffic received a boost from the late summer 2003 opening of Katahdin Paper's East Millinocket, Maine, mill.

To accommodate more lumber and paper moves, the 745-mile regional is repairing and acquiring rail cars. Workers are sealing roofs, and straightening or replacing doors on 212 single-door and 106 double-door box cars, and repairing an additional 500 box cars before MMA signs off on a lease.

The railroad also is improving track to support increasing traffic. Crews are replacing six miles of 100-pound rail with 115-pounded welded rail between Brownsville Junction and Schoodic, Maine; installing 20,000 wood ties near Jackman, Brownsville and Madawaska, Maine; and surfacing 300 track miles systemwide.

MMA officials are trying to keep pace with 286,000-pound car requirements, too. The railroad recently applied for a $34 million Railroad Rehabilitation and Improvement Financing loan through the Federal Railroad Administration. Officials plan to use proceeds to improve bridges and track between Millinocket and Farnham to accommodate 286k, increase corridor speeds and refinance debt.

To the MM&A Family
Dated: Thursday, January 16, 2003
The events of the past few days relating to the future of Great Northern Paper Company are probably well known to most of you.
