“Help Save the Matapédia to Gaspé Railroad!” an English support group page on Facebook managed by: Anthony Bernard Prince from Port-Daniel-Gascons a member of Coalition of Gaspesians for the future of the train since 2014. Our main objective is to put pressure on the provincial and federal governments to repair the entire Matapedia to Gaspe railroad for both freight and passenger train service. As soon as the repairs are finished we will work for the rapid resumption of VIA Rail’s passenger train service to New Carlisle as a first step and then Gaspe. We also support all freight traffic on the Matapedia to Gaspe line. We know that freight traffic is the key to the survival of our railroad. Check out this page often for all the latest news about the Matapedia to Gaspe railroad in English.
