Wisconsin Locomotive

Wisconsin Locomotive - High Level's Canadian National Railyards

High Level’s industrial area intrigues.  Within the two kilometres that comprise its service road are perhaps fifty businesses, ones that mediate between our hinterland frontier and the world at large.  The location is active.  Rarely on this section of road would ten minutes go by without some activity, a vehicle driving by, logging trucks being unloaded, rail cars being loaded, grain trucks pulling in to the Viterra elevator or larger transport trucks pulling in to Neufeld Petroleum (Petro Canada) for fuel. The area contains the Emergency Medical Services, an auto-body collision repair shop, loading bays of a trucking company and much more. And, then, something novel occurs.  A Wisconsin locomotive with Wisconsin map painted on its side arrives and idles overnight in High Level’s Canadian National (C.N.) rail yard. The engine is regal with its cab being painted maroon and yellow and sporting a Wisconsin Rail badge on either side of its cab. Later, I learn that C.N. bought out and operates Wisconsin Rail in the United States.

'Why be reliant upon secular media sources, literary works penned by atheists, and embittered hearsay to inform your views on religiosity, or worse still to bring about the lack thereof, isn't that as sensible as asking directions to KFC from Ronald McDonald?' ―T. C. M
