Interesting September 4, 2022 Bangor Daily News article "More freight trains are rolling through Maine as cargo ship traffic ramps up in New Brunswick"

But for Ken Stannix, the mayor of McAdam, the increase in rail traffic through his town into the U.S. represents a much-needed economic boost for rural towns in northern Maine and southwest New Brunswick.

Stannix said hundreds of millions of Canadian dollars have been spent on recent improvements to the port in Saint John, and tens of millions more in Canadian currency is being spent to improve the rail line from Saint John through McAdam, which is just five miles east of Vanceboro. He said two trains, each of them nearly two miles long, leave McAdam and cross the border at Vanceboro every day, but that number is expected to increase to 12 in the next three years — a jump of 500 percent.
Since 2020 Canadian Pacific has spent $90 million upgrading rail lines in Maine and Quebec, and its service through Maine to Saint John has significantly increased, said Andy Cummings, a company spokesman. Because of the heavier freight traffic across Maine, the company worked with U.S. border officials to open a new container inspection station in Jackman earlier this year.

Cummings said the railroad also transports Maine forest products to customers out of state and has been looking for other ways to grow its rail service in Maine. It also has jobs to fill in Brownville.

“Overall business [in Maine and Quebec] has grown more substantially than we anticipated when we acquired the line,” Cummings said.

Recent movement included 7 reefers and one CP diesel power container. The reefers were all hooked up to the diesel power contianer with eletrical lines for the units on the reefers. Must be really getting serious about this container traffic. Will be interesting to watch and see if SJ can steal some of the refridgerated traffic from Portland, ME.
