Moncton

Moncton is New Brunswick’s largest city. It is a cosmopolitan, bilingual community. It is known as the “Hub City” because of its central location. It is also the hub of railroading in New Brunswick!

Moncton has one major yard, CN’s large Gordon Yard. It used to have a smaller CN yard in downtown Moncton (where the VIA station is) but that has been removed.

CN used to have a large car repair complex in Moncton, but that was removed in the late 1980s.
