Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta Railway Territories
Contained within the 2nd Edition (1915) of the Atlas of Canada is a map that shows the areas that rail companies operated in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta, circa 1913. The six railway lines displayed are the Canadian Government, Canadian Pacific, Canadian Northern, Grand Trunk, National Transcontinental and Great Northern (U.S.). The railway networks are indicated, and the territory tributary to each line is shown in colours. The map includes statistics of the mileage, rolling stock, receipts, cost of construction and the cost of maintenance of the various railway lines for 1913 to 1914. Some mileage data is as of 1913. The table also gives the Canadian total for these statistics as of June 30, 1913. The map displays the railway systems running across the border and into part of the U.S., but they do not own or control the Canadian railways. The map displays the rectangular survey system which records the land that is available to the public. This grid like system is divided into sections, townships, range, and meridian from mid-Manitoba to Alberta.
