Via Rail wrote:VICTORIA – Due to a bridge fire on the E&N Railway approximately 8 km north of Nanaimo, VIA Rail Canada's passenger train service operating between Nanaimo and Courtenay is temporarily disrupted.

While repairs are being carried out, VIA will continue to minimize delays and inconvenience to its passengers and will operate, whenever feasible, its regular service between Victoria and Nanaimo. Alternate transportation by bus has been arranged for passengers travelling between Courtenay and Nanaimo, in both directions, until further notice.
VIA is working closely with the E&N Railway, the owner of the line and bridge, and will issue updates as soon as the situation changes.
Customers wishing further information may call 1-888-VIA-RAIL (1-888-842-7245) and choose Arrivals and Departures.
