Trains are still an important part of Wisconsin commerce, the most efficient way to transport a lot of cargo fast. Wisconsin and Southern is a fairly new company as far as railroading is concerned. It’s continuing to grow 9 years after this celebration. On this day, instead of freight, passengers were offered rides. If you want to take a train ride for fun today, North Freedom is a lot of fun.
Lots of happy people taking pictures and waiting for their turn for a ride.
And then THIS beautiful vintage Soo Line steam train comes down the track. Impressive!
By then it began to rain and since I was on my bike so I headed home. Very fun event!
