Red Deer subdivision CTC
Author: cn1063

Perhaps some late breaking news, but CP is extending CTC northward from Airdrie to Netook. For those unfamiliar with the geography, the Red Deer sub runs north from Calgary to Red Deer 96 miles, which is halfway to Edmonton.  Traffic on the line has been increasing with crude oil shipments, as well as an increase of traffic on the north mainline route, which runs from a connection with the mainline at Portage La Prairie Manitoba, northwest through Saskatoon, to a Junction with the Leduc subdivison at Wetaskiwin.  CTC was installed between Calgary and Airdrie in 2005, and the plan is to install CTC from Netook (mile 63) to Red Deer in 2021.

What is the mileage between Calgary and Airdrie, Airdrie and Netook and Netook and Red Deer?
I rode a CP RDC between South Edmonton and Calgary c1980. Great ride.

Calgary to Airdrie is 16.6 miles, Netook is mile 63 (so 46.6 miles north of Airdrie), Red Deer is mile 95.6 (32.6 miles north of Netook)

Isn't it nice that CP is a good corporate citizen and is preparing the line for the return of frequent passenger service.......
