If the line out to Orion comes out, it probably will never be replaced. Even though GM isn't shipping by train directly from Orion, as long as the plant is in place, the possibility of shipping by rail exists. Even though shipping by rail may not be feasible for either party (GM or CN) at the moment, that doesn't mean it'll never be feasible. I doubt it'll come out as long as there's a possibility rail shipments to or from the plant could resume. That doesn't mean it'll necessarily be maintained as nicely as it is currently, but the money spent on it so far is a fixed cost-effective taking it out won't reimburse CN for the money spent on the line so far.
