Do not know what the current traffic is on this line.

None of it was part of the CNW line to Riverton. Towards the end of operations the CNW had trackage rights over the BN Orin-Casper and Casper-Shobon. At the east side of Casper the CNW left the BN and operated on their own track though town to the yard then rejoined BN on the west side. At Shobon the CNW switched to their own trackage and went on west to Riverton. The final trip to Riverton was made on , if recall is correct, 18 September 1988.
