PRC Subdivision

The PRC Subdivision is a railway line owned and operated by the Dakota, Minnesota and Eastern Railroad subsidiary of Canadian Pacific Railway. The line is the company's important east–west route, connecting Rapid City to Pierre, both in South Dakota. The line is a freight-only line, stretching for approximately 170 miles (270 km) across central South Dakota.

The route is not equipped with centralized traffic control or automatic block signalling systems. Traffic is controlled via radio under track warrant control rules.

In addition to freight yards located at Pierre and Rapid City, there are passing sidings at Philip and Wall. There is also a 6,000-foot (1,800 m) long passing siding named J.C. Siding 25 miles (40 km) west from Pierre. At other locations only spur tracks exist. Station at Cottonwood does not have a siding or spur tracks.
