History by Tony Howe:

The Helm & Northwestern Railroad was incorporated on November 28, 1904, and was operated as a subsidiary of the Y&MV, who leased the railroad on July 1, 1907. Primary traffic for the railroad was from several sawmills operating northwest of Helm.  The line was abandoned ca 1931.
