    CALGARY – Canadian Pacific Railway is reporting a $347 million profit for its third quarter, which is higher than the same time last year but below analyst expectations.

    The profit amounted to $2.34 per share or $2.73 per share after adjustments – both below analyst estimates of $2.79 per share, according to data compiled by Thomson Reuters.

    For the three months ended Sept. 30, the Calgary-based railway had $1.55 billion of revenue, down from $1.71 billion last year.

    CP is entangled in a dispute with some farmers who are worried that not enough of their harvest this year will be shipped because of a rail bottleneck.

    Last week, the company said it was standing ready to move what’s expected to be close to a record crop, but the grain wasn’t ready because of a late harvest.

    CP said it had moved less Canadian grain than at this time last year or on average over the past three years.
