CN Wants STB to Move on Line Sales

Canadian National wants the U.S. Surface Transportation Board to allow it to complete its sale of various line in Michigan and Wisconsin before winter.

CN has proposed selling nearly 500 miles of the former Wisconsin Central to short line operator Watco.

The sale has been on hold since April after shippers, shipper groups and some elected officials expressed concerns about the sale.

Most of the lines are in Wisconsin but a few serve Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

An attorney for CN last week asked regulators to act on the sale, saying the railroads  “desire to complete the proposed line sale transactions prior to the onset of winter and snowfall that could disrupt the efficient start-up of Watco operations.”
