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.
Following the success of Last Mountain Railway, Mobil Grain acquired this 402 kilometer rail-line running southwest of Saskatoon. 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.
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.
