Current Traffic (Nanaimo and North)

As of April 2016, the Nanaimo area is the last area that has active rail customers on the Island railway.

Other customers have either exited or switched to trans-loading as the condition of the track has deteriorated and the speed allowed has decreased, making service impractical.

These are not complete lists — If you know of other current customers or in the history of the E&N please contact me.
