    I remember moving to Wausau, Wisconsin in the 1987. The duplex we rented until the house was finished being built was along the mainline for the CNW between Green Bay and Wausau. It's know a snow mobil trail! I also remember the Soo Line. Alot of these tracks are now snow mobile trails! Now the railroads wants some of it back! The CN has been pushing rail alot more. My friend Jeff sent me this link.


    With the high cost of fuel. It males sense to use rail. I don't think it'll ever go back to the past though.
