TSB report is out on the fatal accident:http://www.tsb.gc.ca/eng/rapports-reports/rail/2017/r17v0096/r17v0096.asp
Also, (this is how it was told to me by a couple of people closely affiliated with the Englewood operation): it seems logging company officials have dug themselves a hole. In their zeal to dump the rail line & sell the assets for a quick short-lived buck for the shareholders & resulting performance bonuses, that they failed to resesrch the market. Apparently the steel in the rail is practically worthless on the used market & removal terribly expensive, more than they expected.
So, Western Forest Products is stuck paying millions to scrap everything and remediate the r.o.w. with money they don't have. Or they have to pay an awful lot to bring the line back into operation and update the old safety apparatus.
WFP has entertained the idea of a rail-trail because it would mean public funding to convert the line. A strange stance for a logging company that historically likes to prevent people going into their TFL's by barring access.
Also apparently there is a locomotive still sitting on the mainline since the accident. They can't move it because if they do, it's legal status makes it a train & they have to follow some strict rules by the federal govt, namely those costly safety upgrades the company isn't willing to spend & the govt isn't giving them an inch. It may get cut up where it sits but they haven't figured out a way to remove the prime mover.
In the mean time, i'm told everything is still there but weeds are slowly encroaching on the r.o.w. Nothing is being touched, no preventative maintenance.
