Torch River Rail becomes Canada's newest short line

Last week, a new short line launched operations in Saskatchewan, Canada. Torch River Rail Inc. began to move trains between Nipawin and Choiceland.

The Nipawin Region Economic Development Department formed the short line earlier this year through a cooperative effort with the cities of Nipawin, Choiceland and White Fox, and a number of shareholders.

Torch River Rail purchased a 30-mile line from Canadian Pacific Railway in December 2007.
