Campbellton

Campbellton was the headquarters of the New Brunswick East Coast Railway. The shop was run by Eastern Railway Services, and performed repairs and maintenance on the NBEC and CFMG fleets. Since the purchase of NBEC by CN, the shops are used for occasional car repair only, and they were finally closed in late May 2013.
Local industry in the area includes a wood transload facility in the yard, the large paper mill in Atholville not far from town, and a short siding for Irving Oil.
