The railway is owned by the Wabush Mining Company, which mines iron ore in Wabush, NL. The ore is transported from the mine to a connection with QNSL at Wabush, NL by Arnaud's sister railway, the Wabush Lake Railway. QNSL transports the ore between Wabush, NL and Arnaud Jct., QC. At Arnaud Jct., the ore is transferred to Chemin de fer Arnaud for the final journey to Pointe-Noire, QC.
Formerly Cleveland Cliffs, Cliffs owns appx. 25percent of railway.
Currently, this railway (along with the Tshiuetin Rail Transportation line, QNSL, and Wabush Lake Railway) form an isolated railroad network, as it does not interchange with any other rail lines on the North American network at this time.
