RAIL DEAL MOVING FORWARD

Canadian National Railway is getting set to take over about 220 miles of track throughout Canada and Upstate New York known as the Massena Line, and the deal could have an impact on about 60 jobs. We recently told you about the pending deal between Canadian National and CSX Corporation. The exact terms of that deal have yet to be released. Canadian National Railway transports over $250 billion worth of goods annually on a rail network stretching through about 20,000 miles of Canada and mid-America, with additional connections to other points in North America. The deal means a connection between the North Country and one of Canada‚Äôs two major rail networks, and that… according to the North Country Chamber of Commerce, translates into new opportunities for businesses. CSX is working closely with customers and partners to ensure a smooth service transition.
