Rail Company in Negotiations for ACR Passenger Service

For those following the continuing saga of the Algoma Central “Tour of the Line”/regular passenger service between Sault Ste. Marie and Hearst, there was an press release published today in the Soo media outlets indicating that of three companies that had tendered qualified bids (a fourth had previously bid, but later withdrew) in the past year to operate the passenger service on the ACR, one has now been selected to move to final negotiations to take over operation of the passenger train from CN this spring.

While details of the company involved are still confidential at this point and not publicly released, the press release indicates that the company’s bid includes plans to “increase revenue and ridership by diversifying the types of tourism products and services available to passengers, as well as making the service self-sustaining within five years.”
