The SLQ provides a key transportation link through the northern New England communities of Lewiston/Auburn, Mechanic Falls, and South Paris, ME; Berlin and Groveton, NH; and Island Pond, VT. In Québec, we deliver the same world-class service with the St. Lawrence & Atlantic (Québec) to the surrounding townships of Coaticook, Sherbrooke, Bromptonville, Windsor and Richmond. The St. Lawrence and Atlantic (Québec) operates over 96 miles of track between the U.S. border and Ste. Rosalie.
We have a dedicated management team based in Auburn and Richmond, enabling the SLQ to provide personalized service to customers systemwide and on both sides of the U.S./Canada border. The 35-acre Maine Intermodal Terminal, part of the CN intermodal network, allows us to offer the only northern New England double-stack container service, complemented by domestic trailer service to both local and intermodal customers.
Through our link with the CN, we serve five deepwater ports, including Vancouver, BC; Montréal, QC; Halifax, NS; New Orleans, LA; and Mobile, AL. In addition, the SLQ connects to Pan Am Railways (PAR) at Danville Junction, ME, providing direct rail links to many of the paper mills in Maine and points south through CSX Corporation (CSX) and Norfolk Southern (NS). We connect to the New Hampshire & Vermont Railroad (NHVT) at Groveton, NH.
Our team can serve as a resource for developing new rail-served properties, expanding current rail infrastructure or pinpointing rail access with the best transload location – all while focused on shortening your time to market. Explore potential sites
