CN Dartmouth Subdivision

The CN Dartmouth subdivision runs from Windsor Junction, Nova Scotia to the Autoport in Shearwater. Major customers on the subdivision include the Autoport, the National Gypsum facility at Wrights Cove, as well as several customers in the Burnside Industrial Park. The Imperial Oil refinery that was in Dartmouth was a major customer when it was still in operation.

CN trains 307 and 308 run between the yard in downtown Dartmouth and Moncton, NB.

Trains 701 and 703 are dedicated gypsum trains that run loads from National Gypsum’s mine in Milford, NS to Wrights Cove. Often only one of those trains runs, depending on demand.

There are two local trains, one that runs from Dartmouth yard to the end of track at the Autoport, and the other that runs from the yard to the Burnside Industrial Park.
