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.
“Having lived in a large city for most of my adult life, I was looking for a place less crowded, less hectic. …The nights in Rusk County are dark and on clear ones I love to stare into the heavens and be able to dream a million dreams and just let my mind wander.”
