From Prince Albert, CP ran a daily-except-Sunday wayfreight back to home terminal Lanigan, on CN for the first 19 miles to Northway on the south side of the South Saskatchewan River, then south 67.6 miles to a short stretch of 0.3 mile on CN at Humboldt, and finally on CP again 26.5 miles to Lanigan.  Here is train No. 86 with its typical single GP9, 8688 in this case at 1240 CST on Wednesday 1976-09-29 and with its front sandbox lid still open, just off the CN at Northway.  Rails of both lines are history there now.
