AUBURN, Maine – Canadian National is discontinuing its intermodal service to Auburn, Maine, operated in conjunction with the St. Lawrence & Atlantic Railway. The discontinuance takes effect Nov. 15, 2014, according to a customer service advisory.
According to the St. Lawrence & Atlantic webpage, the railroad has a 35-acre intermodal facility in Auburn capable of handling double-stack container service. It operates a 260-mile line between Portland and St. Rosalie, Quebec, an eastern suburb of Montreal.
Genesee & Wyoming acquired the SL&A in 2002. The route was once owned by CN subsidiary Grand Trunk Railway.
