Description:
The Cape Breton and Central Nova Scotia Railway is a railway operating in Nova Scotia between Sydney and Truro with spurs at Sydney, Point Tupper, Trenton and Stellarton.

The mainline (and related spurs) were formerly owned by Canadian National Railway and were sold to the short line railroad holding company RailTex in October 1993, making CBNS one of Canada's first shortlines to be acquired from a class I railway. On 4 February 2000, RailTex, including CBNS, was purchased by RailAmerica for US$325,000,000.

Route

The CBNS route crosses varied and beautiful scenery ranging from mixed farmland, forests and river valleys formed by the Appalachian Mountains, to the Strait of Canso (it crosses on the Canso Causeway) and various inlets of the Gulf of St. Lawrence. On Cape Breton Island, the line runs beside the spectacular Bras d'Or Lake.

CBNS maintains the same two subdivisions over this line as did its previous owner CN:

  • Hopewell Subdivision () running from Truro, Nova Scotia in the west to Havre Boucher, Nova Scotia in the east. Spurs at Stellarton, Nova Scotia to Abercrombie, Nova Scotia () and New Glasgow, Nova Scotia to Trenton, Nova Scotia ().


  • Sydney Subdivision () running from Havre Boucher, Nova Scotia in the west to Sydney, Nova Scotia in the east. Spurs at Point Tupper, Nova Scotia () and Jefferson, Nova Scotia to Edwardsville, Nova Scotia ().
