The tracks are only used by one train now - Saskatoon-Kindersly turn 541. CN 563 runs once in a while to serve the Conquest & Elrose subs.
CN 513/4 to White Bear & Kyle still ran when this picture was taken, both subdivisions are gone now.
CN 114/5 no longer utilize this route either, 178 miles of direct trackage between Saskatoon and Calgary already listed for abandonment.
It's sad that CN wants to kill the Oyen and Drumheller subs. With so much nice scenery, it's a shame no one took any train pictures out there.
