Saskatchewan Railway Map
It can be hard keeping track of which rail lines are still in service, and whom they’re owned by, especially in places like Saskatchewan (or Iowa, or North Dakota), where too many rail lines were built to handle grain traffic that have since been abandoned or sold to short-line operators. This relatively recent map of railway lines in Saskatchewan (PDF) is something I stumbled upon while searching for things for the upcoming summer vacation. It’s helpful, though it’s only a snapshot — a lot of rail lines were abandoned in the 1970s and 1980s before the short line era, and those lines don’t turn up here, obviously.
