On Friday 1981-09-25, it was foggy in Leoville, SK, as a freight train from Meadow Lake returning to Prince Albert passed the grain elevator at 0848 CST, with a typical trio of RS-23 lightweight (for CN joint use branchline operation) units, 8018 + 8016 + 8015, for power.  34.2 more miles to reach CN rails at Debden, then 31.5+28.7+0.1+0.6 miles on four CN subdivisions (Big River, then Blaine Lake, Duck Lake and Tisdale) to reach CP rails at Prince Albert and a switchback route down to the CP yard, a spider’s web of lines.

 From https://www.traingeek.ca/wp/trains/class-1-railways/cp-saskatchewan/meadow-lake/:  “The subdivision was traded to CN in 1987 (?) in exchange for the CN Bengough subdivision. It was taken over by the Carlton Trail Railway in 1997.”  In 2008, decommissioning was announced, and it is now abandoned with the rails removed.
