Minister says train a priority

Cannon pledges to get tourist attraction back on track this year

Federal Transport Minister Lawrence Cannon has pledged to help the Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield steam train reopen in time for the 2009 season, which would begin in May.

The historic tourist attraction ceased operations last May, when a landslide near Chelsea damaged the tracks to the tune of $4.3 million.

CBC: Gatineau commits $1.7M to help revive Wakefield steam train

The City of Gatineau will contribute up to $1.7 million toward repairs to a railroad that could potentially allow the Wakefield steam train to chug through the region again. The money will be provided to the company that owns the railroad, la Compagnie de chemin de fer de l'Outaouais (CCFO), on the condition that the upper levels of government also contribute money toward relaunching the train, the City of Gatineau said in a news release Tuesday.

$1.7 million on repairs to the track used by the Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield steam train.

The train has been parked since May, following a landslide near the track. Since then, owners of the locomotive and passenger cars have put the operation up for sale and say they have received half a dozen offers.

Le train à vapeur n'est pas le bienvenu à Chelsea: Jean-Francois, Le Droit

Le train à vapeur n'est pas le bienvenu à Chelsea

Jean-François Dugas, Le Droit

"Ici, à Chelsea, il n'y a pas personne qui veut l'avoir le train. Tout le monde déteste le train à vapeur et nous sommes bien contents qu'il ne soit pas passé cet été. Si l'Est ontarien le veut, qu'il le prenne et on va leur livrer !"

Charles Thériault, LeDroit

La saga du train à vapeur Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield pourrait connaître un dénouement heureux d’ici quelques semaines.

Le Droit: Le p'tit train intéresse toujours l'Est ontarien

Jean-François Dugas, Le Droit

Même si la Ville de Gatineau poursuit ses initiatives pour conserver le train à vapeur de Wakefield dans la région de l'Outaouais, son administrateur a continué à vendre sa salade dans l'Est ontarien, mardi soir.



John E. Trent, Co-président, Les Amis du Train à vapeur

Depuis le début de la crise du Train à vapeur Hull Chelsea La Pêche (HCW) il y a maintenant quatre mois, les Amis du train ont toujours mis l’accent sur deux priorités pour la relance du train. Il faut absolument un investissement public et la restructuration de la soi-disant Compagnie du chemin de fer de l’Outaouais (CCFO). La députée provinciale, Stéphanie Vallée, et le député fédéral, Lawrence Cannon, ont récemment confirmé l’arrivée à bref échéance d’une contribution financière de leurs deux gouvernements. D’ailleurs avec les pertes d’emplois et la fermeture d’hôtel occasionnées par la mise en gare du train, on comprend bien l’utilité de tels investissements à long terme. Alors, en ce moment, nous voulons revenir sur la nécessité d’un changement dans la gouvernance du projet du train touristique en lançant de nouvelles propositions que nous vous soumettons dans le présent document.

Rail line not out of steam yet

OTTAWA-The federal government has refused to upgrade the Hull-Chelsea-Wakefield stream train line, but Chelsea Mayor Jean Perras says the municipalities will apply for another grant in September and the train could still roll again next summer.

Mr. Perras said the government rejected a grant application by Gatineau, Chelsea and La Pêche in 2007 because the steam train did not carry freight. He said he does not know whether the line would qualify for a grant under a new federal-provincial infrastructure program that is to start this fall.

Le maire de Gatineau, Marc Bureau, soutient que la Compagnie de chemin de fer de l'Outaouais (CCFO) est prête à faire preuve d'ouverture, mais pas à n'importe quel prix.

Le maire de Gatineau, Marc Bureau, ne veut pas que la Compagnie de chemin de fer de l'Outaouais (CCFO) se retrouve avec tout le fardeau financier de la relance du train à vapeur.
