Agawa Train Expected to Return

Officials in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, are optimistic that the Agawa Canyon Tourist Train will operate in 2021 even if Canadian National sells the Algoma Central Railway as it is seeking to do.

Sault Ste. Marie Mayor Christian Provenzano said the city knows about the sale efforts and has been “in constant communication with CN and the investment bank hired to market the asset.”

Provenzano said the city plans to continue to emphasize the importance of the tourist train to the community and Ontario’s tourism industry.

That thought was echoed by a tourism official who said CN is continuing its preparations to run the train even if the rail line has a new owner.

CN is seeking to sell lightly-used lines in Ontario, Wisconsin and Michigan.
