Transportation Company - Wabush Lake - Railroad



Company History: The Wabush Lake Railway was built in 1963 to link iron mines around Labrador City, Labrador to the Quebec North Shore & Labrador mainline at Wabush. The QNS&L then takes the ore south to their connection with WLRY's sister road Arnaud Railway who forwards it to the docks on the St. Lawrence River. Wabush Lake also serves as a bridge route for for traffic from the recently built Bloom Lake Railway which runs west from Labrador City.

These lines, Wabush Lake, QNS&L, Arnaud, Bloom Lake, plus Tshiuetin Rail, form a contiguous network in Quebec and Labrador that is separate from the rest of the North American rail network. New railroad equipment must cross the St. Lawrence on ship or barge to reach these lines. Of the five, only Wabush Lake and Arnaud are related on the corporate level.
