Can anyone give me insight into the time frame when this line was abandoned? I have a seen a number of BN maps that seldom included this connection. I recently found a BN map from 1974 that shows it as a complete thru line but all I have been able to find on the net was a Montana government document from the late 80's asking to abandon a facility in Big Sandy. Is this about the time when that section was abandoned? Anyone know why? Lack of traffic etc..?
If you go to the Trains Magazine forums, and ask for help, you may get help from someone who is familiar with the GN.
