Great Sandhills Railway Switching Operation at North West Terminal Project - Revised Design

Great Sandhills Railway Ltd. is proposing to expand the existing North West Terminal, a grain handling facility located one kilometre east of Unity, Saskatchewan and serviced by the Canadian National Railway (CN) and the Canadian Pacific Railway (CP). As proposed, the Great Sandhills Railway Switching Operation at North West Terminal Project – Revised Design would include 8.9 hectares of new tracks, including two shop tracks and a repair shop. The new tracks would reduce congestion on the mainline and create a space for the mechanical inspection or repurposing of trains and rail cars.
