Mission to Wilsall

Picture Point of Interest

GOOGLE MAPS no longer available: With apologies, I am unable to continue showing Google Maps. Google has forced my hand by increasing their map usage fee from nothing/free to OVER $300 A MONTH for the Abandoned Rails website! This is an expense that I simply cannot afford. Rest assured I am looking at available open source alternatives, so maps should be back online soon!

This abandoned railway line served the agricultural communities of Grannis, Chadborn, Clyde Park, and Wilsall. It ran 22 miles from Mission to Wilsall and was completed in 1909 by the Shields River Valley Railway. A year later it was merged into the Northern Pacific Railroad and then into the Burlington Northern Railroad.

The line was abandoned in 1985 under the BN.

Thanks to Robert Lauchner for contributing information about this route.
