Central Manitoba Railway

Central Manitoba Railway (CEMR) is a Canadian shortline railway operating in the province of Manitoba.

CEMR was created in 1999 by Cando Contracting Ltd to purchase the former CN Pine Falls and Carman subdivisions. They use 3 ex CN GP9rm's (GR-418a,b or c) locomotives, and run trains twice weekly on the Pine Falls and Carman subdivisions (Pine Falls sub (67 miles) (Carman sub 51 miles), they run 5 days (Weekdays) in the Norcran Industrial Area in North Transcona. They purchased a former CPR yard that was built in 1887-9 and built a new shop-house and diesel repair facility, and also repair cars for other Railways

They run on 100lb rail on the Carman sub, and 85lb light rail on the Pine Falls sub, one of the few light rail branches existing in Manitoba.
