Canadian National Railway
We are fortunate to have two rail lines to serve business, both operated by Canadian National. The lines intersect in Ladysmith, and all communities in the County are situated on one of these lines. The North-South line is one of the busiest in the Country and provides access from coast to coast, and international ports. The East-West line was rehabbed in 2012 – west of Ladysmith – with over $30 million in improvements, to serve the frac sand industry.
“…there have been opportunities to expand both our facility and our workforce, during which time we worked with various county entities and received the support we needed. While business has its highs and lows, what has been stable for us in Rusk County has been a dependable, dedicated work force with a strong work ethic. In addition, it’s been a wonderful place to call home with quality schools, services and a safe place to raise a family.”.”
