Ontario Railway Network marker posts

A marker post indicates distance along the railway network. Signs are often posted at intervals along a railway subdivision to indicate the distance from its point of origin in miles or kilometers.

This layer is part of the Ontario Railway Network (ORWN) suite of 7 Data Classes that have been adapted from Natural Resources Canada GEOBASE National Railway Network (NRWN) standards. It represents the Ontario Government's initiative to adapt the Federal Government's GEOBASE standard for the National Railway Network (NRWN) geospatial data.

Although mainly used as a base data feature appearing on cartographic products and views, users will benefit from having additional railway-associated attributes available to them.
