RAILROAD OPERATING INFORMATION

CANADIAN NATIONAL

Former Wisconsin Central

In 1986, after Soo Line acquired the remnants of the Milwaukee Road, Soo Line grouped several of its lines into the "Lake States Transportation Division". The goal was to sell this division to a new company. And in 1987, the division was acquired by the newly formed Wisconsin Central, resurrecting the name of a Soo Line predecessor whose lines represented a major portion of the lines acquired.

In 1993, Wisconsin Central acquired the Fox River Valley Railroad, which in 1988 had acquired several lines from Chicago & North Western. And in 1993, Wisconsin Central also acquired Green Bay & Western. And in 2001, CN acquired Wisconsin Central.

Soo Line and Milwaukee Road historically had numbered subdivisions, which were renumbered over the years as operating divisions were consolidated. Named subdivisions were adopted after Soo Line acquired the Milwaukee Road, and most recent CN subdivision names are used here.
