CMQ dismayed by unauthorized inspection of its tracks near Lac-Mégantic, Que.

July 14, 2015

Central Maine & Quebec Railway (CMQ) was dismayed to learn through the media of an unauthorized "inspection" of its tracks yesterday near Lac-Mégantic, Que.

With the exception of Transport Canada, CMQ has not authorized any third-party to inspect any portion of its railway. Walking near or around railway property is not only illegal, it is extremely dangerous. Trespassers pose a serious risk to themselves and to the safety of railway operations.
