Towner to Maxbass


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 was built in 1905 by the Dakota and Great Northern Railroad, and connected the communities of Towner and Maxbass. In 1907, the line was sold to the Great Northern Railway, which was then later merged into the Burlington Northern.

The route was abandoned in stages:

  • Dunning to Maxbass abandoned in 1971
  • Newburg to Dunning in 1981
  • Towner to Newburg in 1993
