Company History: The Last Mountain Railway (reporting mark LMR) is a Canadian short line railway company and subsidiary of Mobil Grain Ltd. LMR operates on trackage between Regina and Davidson in Saskatchewan, established in 2009.[1] The trackage was formerly operated by Canadian National Railway, the LMR interlines with Canadian National in both Regina and Davidson. This subdivision is part of the former Canadian National line that links Regina and Saskatoon. Freight railway stations along the line include Davidson, Girvin, Craik, Aylesbury, Chamberlain, Findlater, Bethune, Disley, Lumsden, Condie and Regina.[2] All locomotives used on LMR are owned by Mobil Grain (MGLX) and also utilized on their sister company, Big Sky Rail Corp.From Wikipedia

Successor/Parent History:
Following in the footsteps of their father, Lavern and Sheldon Affleck successfully farmed, processed, and marketed their crops. On the side, they developed and sold automation systems and color sorting technology to enhance crops. After many years on the farm, the brothers decided to focus more on the processing and marketing aspect of the industry...and the idea of a transportable grain terminal was born. The design criterion was based around the plan to have flexibility to be able to easily adapt to the ever-changing face of agriculture. In 2005, Mobil Grain's first operation site was set up in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. A year later, making use of its transportability feature, Mobil Grain was relocated to Meyronne, Saskatchewan where they developed a great relationship with the Great Western Railway shortline. Both Sheldon and Lavern were impressed with the unexpected benefits of a private railcar operation.
