I don't think of myself as a role model. I do try to live in a compassionate, considerate and positive way. The only advice I can offer is to find what you love to do, find the joy in it, and express yourself through your passion.

@Veronique: Merci beaucoup Véronique! Heureusement nous ne sommes pas des Américains! Toutefois, nous partageons un patrimoine commun! Oui, les chemins de fer jouent un rôle important dans l'entretien du vaste territoire qu'est le Canada et le reste du continent nord-américain! ;-))

janina from Melbourne, Australia

A bit like some of our more isolated townships' railways...no actual station, just a siding, especially when there are wheat silos involved, such as here. Gets the message across eric. ;oD

18 Mar 2012 12:41pm

@janina: Thank you very much Janina! Yes wheat is the key! This is the heartland for wheat production and grain silos exist in almost every town. With a land mass as large as Canada the railroads are a vital part of our society! ;-)
