Winning bid for railway in fiery Lac-Megantic derailment was $15.9 million
PORTLAND, Maine - The Chapter 11 trustee says the winning bid for a Maine-based railroad that went bankrupt after a fiery oil train derailment in Lac-Megantic, Que., amounted to nearly $15.9 million.
Robert Keach filed documents Wednesday outlining details a day before the winning bid goes before a U.S. bankruptcy judge in Maine and a Superior Court judge in Quebec.
Winning bidder Railroad Acquisitions LLC, a subsidiary of Fortress Investment Group, also served as the "stalking horse" bidder, setting a minimum bid for Montreal, Maine and Atlantic Railways. Eastern Maine Railway and Springfield Terminal Railway bid on the Maine track. Another company bid for a smaller portion of track.
Proceeds from the company's sale will be used to repay creditors and victims, supplementing $25 million in insurance payouts available following the disaster.
