Re: CN White Pine Sub
Hmmm...the last thing I had heard about this sub was that it was Out Of Service from Marengo Junction all the way to White Pine. I was also told that CN does run a track inspection truck all the way to Bergland on occasion, I guess maybe to satisfy the NTSB because this line is not officially abandoned. I'm not really sure. Anyway, from Bergland north to White Pine, I was told that nothing has traversed this part for a few years due to several washouts. If CN were to resume to White Pine, I would just about expect the new owners of the mine to chip in a good portion of the repair bill. That might be a sticking point. So, if rail returns, my expectations would be possibly some kind of truck to rail trainsload at Bergland. Just a guess at best.
