Also we are in the works down at the railway museum in Hillsborough to reactivate the rail line to Weldon Creek. We have started up one of the diesels at the museum (CN 1754) , the yard is suppose to be entirely rebuilt (was to be done this fall but CN decided to have a few incidents and kept the contractors busy) if you see machinery at the museum in the next few weeks, that's what's happenning, will be a rebuilt yard at the museum, next year we will work on that mainline which has just been cleared of stumps n trees from Grays Island to Weldon. We may be able to run a motorcar {putt putt} haha the entire 2 and a half mile leg. To view the start up of the locomotive its on youtube, just search for CN 1754. That was done mid September after over a years worth of prepping.. the track work inside the building and a small portion outside along with working on the locomotive mechanically. Just a note..that model of locomotive that we activated is the only 1 in North America that will be operating, it is the sister locomotive that is at Kensington Jct on PEI which is the 2nd of 2 left in North America but its just a shell.
Fascinating. Moncton-Shediac is about the only place in NB where passenger rail would be immediately 'viable' (AKA people would use it at all) and wouldn't conflict with freight, and Scoudouc is nearly halfway there. I wonder what industries Shediac lured that would need rail?
