In September of 2011, Mobil Grain acquired this 402 kilometer rail-line running southwest of Saskatoon.

CN running rights from Davidson northwest to Saskatoon, and Saskatoon southwest to Delisle, connect BGS with it's affiliated and preceding shortline, Last Mountain Railway (see map for details). Big Sky Rail provides producers with a competitive freight alternative and ensures that the railroad stays active and available for Saskatchewan's vast delivery needs.




With years of experience in farming and cleaning their own grain, brothers and co-founders, Lavern and Sheldon Affleck left the farm and launched their own mobile processing plant. Constantly challenging themselves to think “outside the box”, Mobil Grain offers innovative solutions for forward-thinking producers and buyers.


In 2008, when Mobil Grain founder, Sheldon Affleck, found himself at a meeting where CN was discussing their intention to abandon this beautiful stretch of rail, he saw a golden opportunity. Through negotiation and shareholder investments this 136 kilometer track, which runs from Regina north to Davidson, soon became the heartbeat of Mobil Grain operations.


This efficiently-designed, loop-track port facility coincides with Mobil Grain’s unique ability to deliver a string of railcars ready for unload – enough railcars, in fact, to fill entire vessels. Located along the Mission River in Thunder Bay, Ontario, MobilEx Terminal Ltd. connects producers with competitive worldwide grain markets.
