Wisconsin and Southern’s 25th Anniversary


7-23-05

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.
