Bad weather last week after a June 2 derailment about 32 kilometres south of Churchill has delayed OmniTRAX re-railing efforts and the track may not reopen until late this week, Merv Tweed, president of OmniTRAX Canada, said in a statement June 6. “Subject to an improvement in the weather, we expect to be able to restore full service on the line by late next week,” Tweed said.
Thirteen cars of a 50-car load on the OmniTRAX Canada-owned Hudson Bay Railway freight train derailed en route to the grain storage facility at the Port of Churchill.
OmniTRAX Canada is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Denver-based short line railroad, which owns Hudson Bay Railway. OmniTRAX in turn is an affiliate of The Broe Group, owned by Pat Broe, who founded the company in Denver in 1972 as a real estate asset management firm.
