CN will be performing maintenance on the railway tracks on its Springhill Subdivision, between the municipalities of Dorchester and Sackville. The gang started its work at Dorchester on July 31 and proceeds East to finish just East of Sackville around August 6. The work is carried out 7 days a week, between 2:30 p.m. and 00:30 a.m..
The work consists of replacing ties and levelling the railway track. Our work gang will comprise some 50 employees who will be working simultaneously on the track with around 27 machines. There will be heavy machinery on site and two-way radios will be on for the safety of the workers.
We apologize for the inconvenience caused by the work. Note that work of this magnitude is only carried out every 15 to 20 years.
Should members of the public require more information, they may contact CN at 1-888-888-5909.
SappyFest 7 Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere presents Cold Specks and Bry Webb, Sunday, August 5th at the Sappyfest Mainstage, 5:00 PM
Cold Specks is 23-year-old Al Spx from Etobicoke, Canada. Already making critical waves in the U.K., with television performances on Later With Jools Holland and British media such as The Guardian, The Times, NME and more weighing in on the recent U.K. release of "Holland", Cold Specks is now ready to release her music here at home.
Describing her sound as "Doom Soul", Cold Specks' music is steeped in the musical traditions of the Deep South. No wonder then that Al cites the Lomax Field Recordings and James Carr as influences along with Bill Callahan and Tom Waits. With a voice that evokes the 'spirit feel' of Mahalia Jackson and the visceral tones of Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Cold Specks' sparse arrangements and chain gang rhythms stop you dead in your tracks
