These two iron ore railways opened in 1963 are owned by Cliffs Mining Co. Near Labrador City in Newfoundland, the Wabush line (61 km) links the Scully mine at Wabush with the Quebec North Shore & Labrador Railway (qv) at Wabush Lake Junction, whence the line to Emeril Junction (59 km), known as the Northern Lands Railway, is jointly owned with QNSL. From Emeril Junction, Wabush's iron ore moves south over QNSL to Arnaud Junction near Sept-Iles in Quebec. Here the Arnaud Railway (36 km) runs westwards to the port of Pointe-Noire on the St Lawrence river. QNSL provides motive power for the Arnaud Railway.
