CN is also a rail industry leader in the employment of radio-control (R/C) for switching locomotives in yards, to the detriment of employees since this results in reductions to the number of yard workers required.
CN Marine was created by parent Canadian National Railway (CN) in 1977 as a means to group the company's ferry operations in eastern Canada into a separate operating division.
CN Marine undertook several major service improvements on the constitutionally-mandated services to Newfoundland and Prince Edward Island by commissioning the construction of the new vessels Abegweit and Caribou in the late 1970s and early 1980s.

 NationMaster - Encyclopedia: Terra Transport
By the early 1970s, CN was facing increased scrutiny from federal politicians who complained about the railway's continuous losses, mostly brought about by the government forcing the company to undertake various endeavours in the national interest, often at the expense of business and economic logic.
CN's operations in Newfoundland revolved around the former Newfoundland Railway, which was the longest narrow gauge railway in North America, stretching for 1000 kilometres across the island from the ferry terminal in Port aux Basques to the provincial capital at St.
CN invested heavily in improving the track during the 1950s-1960s but the narrow gauge operation still couldn't compete with the flexibility of trucks.

Marine Atlantic Inc. (fr: Marine Atlantique) is an independent Canadian Crown corporation offering ferry services between the provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia.
Marine Atlantic was established in 1986 to take over the provision of ferry services in Atlantic Canada which had previously been operated by CN Marine, a subsidiary of Canadian National Railway.
Marine Atlantic also removed itself from the provision of coastal ferry services in Newfoundland and Labrador with the transfer of operations to the provincial government in 1997, in exchange for federal funding to extend the Trans-Labrador Highway to service coastal communities.

 CN Marine
In 1986 the federal government approved a restructuring at CN which saw the company remove itself completely from the east coast ferry service, which was renamed Marine Atlantic.
This move was in advance of CN abandoning railway services on the islands of Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland, which had required use of CN/CN Marine rail ferries.
At the time of the changeover to Marine Atlantic, the last of the rail ferries to Newfoundland were retired, with that province's railway abandoned in September 1988; Prince Edward Island followed in December 1989.

In the late 1970s, CN (name change in 1960) underwent a corporate reorganization which saw all of its ferry services placed under a separate Crown corporation named CN Marine.
A curious phenonmenon arising out of CN Marine's name-switch operation is that many in the general public assume the new vessel's name was "Abegweit II" - this is not the case as She was officially registered as MV Abegweit.
The new owners were supposedly examining the possibility of using MV Accrued Mariner as a freight/railway ferry in the Great Lakes or possibly in the Gulf of Mexico but She was never used and languished in Galveston until February 2004.
