If there is a rail emergency in Miworth call 1-800-465-9239 to reach CN Emergency dispatch. This phone number is posted at every crossing.
Be prepared to provide information.
The rail line through Miworth is part of the Nechako Subdivision. CN identifies the crossings on this line by Mile posts, measured east to west, starting from Prince George. The crossing sites in our area are:
La Farge - Mile 5.35
Simco - Mile 6.31
Catherine Drive - Mile 8.70
The Lookout (south end of Miworth Road) - Mile 10.94
Common reasons for calling the railway include:
Anything blocking the track, or debris near the rails which might be struck by a train. Railroaders refer to this as a fouled track. The most common examples of this would be:
A vehicle stuck at a crossing
Ambulance traveling to or from Miworth. Trains can be stopped to ensure that the crossings are open all the way into town
Fire on or near the track
Debris or spills from a passing train
Broken rail signals, switches or other equipment
