Brantford Spur

Brantford spur is owned by Ingenia Polymer and was formerly CN Brantford Spur, nee CN Burford Spur.
It once connected with a small portion of the isolated ex LE&N to reach Johnson Wax which no longer
uses rail. Also, a small portion of the ex TH&B Hamilton-Waterford mainline remains and it is where
Ingenia Polymer is located.

CN did not reassume this spur due to only one customer Ingenia Polymers which acquired the spur and
contracted out its operation and maintenance to Allied Track Services which has used various car movers.

Note: Last run by G&W was RLHH 598 engine 2111 with 6 hoppers on 9/17/2018.

Allied Track Services uses a Trackmobile car mover to move a single car. 11/16/2018 James Gardiner
Allied Track Services also maintains the track which is now owned by Ingenia.
