The Bedford subdivision runs from Halifax to Truro, Nova Scotia. This is part of CN’s eastern main line between Halifax and Montreal.

CN trains 120 and 121 and 307 and 308 all run on the Bedford Subdivision.

There are also local trains that run from Truro and from Halifax, usually powered by one or two GP38 units.
