Canadian National Railway Co. said yesterday it had reacquired three former subsidiaries and a rail-freight ferry operation from close partner Quebec Railway Corp. for $49.8 million.

CN agreed to purchase the CFMG line, a primary artery for Quebec shippers of aluminum, paper and forestry products, as well as the New Brunswick East Coast Railway and Ottawa Central lines.

The railway also acquired QRC's Compagnie de gestion de Matane Inc. rail-ferry services that runs along the north shore of the St. Lawrence River.

The three lines rejoin CN after the railway sold them off to QRC in the late 1990s.
