First Freight Train Over a Year Could be Headed to Churchill

The first freight train in well over a year could be headed to Churchill as early as this week.


The Arctic Gateway Group, who bought the rail line from OmniTrax and have been working hard to repair the washed out sections, says that they are taking orders to be delivered by rail to Canada’s only deep-water Arctic sea port.


The first train on the freshly repaired rail link to Churchill arrived in the northern town on October 31st, which was met with a street party attended by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

The rail line had been out of service since 2017, when spring flooding had washed out sections of the line.
