It will be a little longer before any potential trains run along the tracks in Vancouver’s Arbutus Corridor.
The federal agency that handles complaints about transportation says a hearing over the line’s future has been suspended until further notice.

Since the summer of 2014 The City of Vancouver has been fighting CP Rail over its plans to clear the Arbutus Corridor and activate its railway, but it doesn’t look like the dispute will end any time soon.
A number of community gardens situated along the line after the track was abandoned 15 years ago, have been removed since the dispute began.
The city argues running trains through the area once again would compromise safety.
Vancouver is asking the Canadian Transportation agency to cancel CP’s plans to reactivate the corridor, and force CP to come up with a reasonable offer to sell the land.
The federal dispute regulator says that hearing, which had been scheduled for Jan. 28 and 29, has been suspended at the request of both parties.
CKNW has put in a request to the city to determine why the delay was requested.
