Two class 1 railroads run through Brandon, each with several miles of undeveloped sidings in Brandon’s industrial area. Both Canadian Pacific Railway (CP) and Canadian National Railway (CN) maintain modern yards in Brandon with ready access to their mainline tracks.
CP has a network of 24 intermodal terminals in Canada and the U.S. The railway also has eight border crossings between Canada and the U.S., offering ready access to our markets in both countries. CP operates container terminals and additional handling facilities to serve Midwest U.S. centres, including Chicago, Minneapolis and Milwaukee.
CN spans Canada and mid-America, from the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans to the Gulf of Mexico, serving the ports of Vancouver, Prince Rupert, Montreal, Halifax, New Orleans and Mobile and the key metropolitan areas of Toronto, Buffalo, Chicago, Detroit, Duluth, Superior, Green Bay, Minneapolis/St. Paul, Memphis, St. Louis and Jackson with connections to all points in North America.
OmniTRAX operates the Hudson Bay Railway, a short line railroad connecting to Manitoba’s northern seaport at Churchill. OmniTRAX moves commodities such as grains, ores and wood products through the seaport to Northern and Eastern Europe and Latin America. The Hudson Bay Railway is accessed from Brandon via CN Rail.
