Hay River might be the farthest north, but there's a couple points that are nearly as far north but further west. Fort Nelson is one, and the Tacla subdivison is the other. The Tacla sub is uncompleted but was graded all the way up to Dease Lake-pretty much all you'd need to do is drop in some culverts and the rails. Still a very long distance to the Bering Straight though.

Red and dark orange sections were completed, light orange and yellow sections were cleared and graded.
The rest... is what I imagine a line from there might look like.
