Transportation Company - Esquimalt & Nanaimo (1883) - Railroad



Company History: Esquimalt and Nanaimo Railway (Reporting marks: EN, ENR, SVI). The Equimalt and Nanaimo Railway (E&N) was formed in 1883 as part of the treaty made by Prime Minister John Macdonald to bring British Columbia into Confederation.

Between 1905 and 1999, the E&N Railway was owned and operated by the Canadian Pacific Railway. In 1996, CPR reorganized the E&N as an "internal short line" named E&N Railfreight. In 1998, CPR sold the middle part of the corridor to RailAmerica. RailAmerica ceased to operate the E&N on 30 June 2006, with the Washington Group's Southern Railway of British Columbia taking over operations the following day under the name Southern Railway of Vancouver Island.

Brief History:
Canada is a North American country stretching from the U.S. in the south to the Arctic Circle in the north. Major cities include massive Toronto, west coast film centre Vancouver, French-speaking Montréal and Québec City, and capital city Ottawa. Canada's vast swaths of wilderness include lake-filled Banff National Park in the Rocky Mountains. It's also home to Niagara Falls, a famous group of massive waterfalls.
