Group Description

This list is the most modern of the Soo Line-related lists and is dedicated to the post-1992 Midwest USA operations of CPRail System/Canadian Pacific Railway. The purpose of this list is to serve as a forum for questions and current events concerning the former Soo Line/Milwaukee Road in this geographical area.

What's covered...

1. Operations, news, sighting and events of the 1992-present CPRail System/Canadian Pacific Railway in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Wisconsin.

2. Operations, news, sightings and events pertaining to Soo/CPR spin-off railroads Twin Cities & Western, Dakota Missouri Valley & Western, Northern Plains, Sunflour RR, and Progressive Rail are welcome, since they all feed traffic directly to the modern CPR. No Wisconsin Central or IMRL or IC&E please. They are too large and are covered well on other lists.

3. Modeling-related questions for the post-1992 era are fine, but the emphasis of this list will be operations and current events, not modeling.

What's not covered...

1. CPR operations, news, sightings, and events within Canada only.

2. News and operations of other railroads (except the spin-offs listed above), unless it has a direct effect on current operations of the CPR in the coverage area.

3. Please keep politics, union, and labor issues to a minimum. This is a railfan-oriented list, not an employee-only chat room. Amtrak topics should be limited to operations and events over the CPR only.
