Railroad Cancels: Great Northern Railway

The Great Northern Railway running from St. Paul, Minnesota to Seattle, Washington, was the creation of the 19th century railroad tycoon James J. Hill and was developed from the St. Paul and Pacific Railroad. The Great Northern's route was the northernmost transcontinental railroad route in the United States and was north of the Northern Pacific Railway. The Great Northern was a privately funded transcontinental railroad, though some of its predecessor roads received land grants.
