CN Rail Delays Due to Landslides

November 23, 2017

The following is a network update from CN Rail:

Due to 8 landslides reported in the Ashcroft, Yale and Squamish subdivisions in the recent days all rail service is suspended from Edmonton to Vancouver. With rain in the forecast, concerns about the stability of the area as well as the safety of crews and goods remain. We have geotechnologists in the area monitoring the situation along with crews and equipment diverting water as needed.

At this time, our earliest estimate is that the track may be passable Thursday at 19:00 PST, but this could change depending on conditions. Once the track is passable we do expect delays due to the backlog of traffic. Crews are being positioned in the area to bring the network back to normal operations as quickly as possible.
