The Train is Up and Running!

The Tatamagouche Road Train had it's first run today!   It's now off and running every 30 min from Foodland starting at 11am - last journey is 3:30pm.



Thanks to Halterm Container Terminal for their help!

HTportEstablished in 1969, Halterm Container Terminal Limited has made a name for itself offering fast and supremely flexible service to global shipping line customers, the masters of the largest containerships in the world. Halterm Limited is located in Halifax, Canada, a harbour with natural deep
water and a perfect location to handle ultra large container ships with a terminal capability as yet unmatched by other east coast ports.

The Tatamagouche Road Train Society’s new community train was brought to Canada aboard the 'CSCL Oceania'. This vessel is one of the largest container vessels ever to call Halifax, with a length of 334m and is capable of carrying more than 8000 twenty-foot shipping containers. Upon hearing the story of the arrival of the road train, Halterm Container Terminal Limited staff and members of the International Longshoreman’s Association, were keen to speed the little train on its journey to Tatamagouche and so, using the largest ship-to-shore cranes on Canada’s east coast, with a height of over 76 metres, the new road train was brought ashore in Halifax.

Happy travels for the town of Tatamagouche.

The train is finally here!

The train was finally loaded onto a truck in Halifax today and is now en-route to Tatamagouche!


The Train has arrived in Nova Scotia!

The ship was called CSCL Oceania and was loaded in Shanghai China on the 1st April and arrived Halifax 2nd May.
