Denver-based railway company OmniTRAX Inc. is planning to ship more than 330,000 barrels of light crude oil along the Hudson Bay Railway to the Port of Churchill in Manitoba for shipment to Europe. The venture is designed to be a test run to attract investment for regular rail shipments of oil from the Bakken Shale formation in the United States and from Alberta's bottlenecked oil sands facilities.
