05/17/2019 - GWR purchases the Fife Lake Railway

On March 29, 2019, Great Western Railway acquired the Fife Lake Railway under a 100% share purchase agreement.

GWR has operated and maintained the FLR since its inception, under operating agreements and more recently, a lease of the rail line. Management and the board of the GWR has always seen the FLR as a very good fit for our organization and upon completion of successful negotiations over this past year, we are happy to announce that the transfer of full ownership to the GWR organization is now complete.

We look forward to continue to work close with the communities along the line, and we are excited to work on promoting the growth of railcar shipments in this area to better serve farmers and industries along the line.

The Fife Lake Railway is situated over more than 60 miles from a junction with the GWR line just west of Assiniboia south to Coronach, Sk.
