Revillo to Strandburg


Map submitted by Andrew Laverdiere.

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 railway line between Revillo and Strandburg was abandoned by the Chicago and North Western Railroad in 1968.

I have seen this abandonment first hand as a child visiting my Grandfathers birthplace in Revillo. The old right of way was visible near some grain silos in 1990. From maps i've seen this was originaly owned by Minneapolis & St. Louis. The Great Northern also had tracks just north of town.

Originally from Iowa. I remember seeing this line being abandoned in 1974. The telephone poles and wires were still in place but the roadbed was graded and there were RR ties sticking up through the grade at odd angles. Part of the slaughter that was M&SL trackage that was abandoned by the C&NW after the merger in 1960.
