RAILROAD OPERATING INFORMATION

CANADIAN PACIFIC

Former Milwaukee Road

Lines are grouped into historic operating divisions. As passenger service declined during the 1950's, many divisions were consolidated.

Milwaukee Road and Soo Line 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 are used here. Certain lines abandoned longer ago are identified differently.
