What is the current status of the line? Last I heard, the major customer on the line (a sawmill?) closed, but I couldn't find out if it was still open.

The current status of the line is that service has been "discontinued." MRL stopped running on the line after an extremely wet Spring of 2013 would have required extensive repairs. The south end of the line, between Dixon and Moiese, has been used for car storage.

Is this the same branch that passes through Stevensville?
