The tragedy in Lac Megantic has had a far-reaching effect on the railroad industry, starting with the fact that the accident effectively bankrupted Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railway. Some of the company's assets are being auctioned off to help pay creditors and victims. That includes a stretch of track that appears to be of interest to the Irving group.
