Can you see the underpass? It lets traffic and pedestrians travel under the railroad. This helps people coexist safely with nearby industries.

Many of the trains that cross this intersection are carrying material that will be turned into steel. They offload their cargo in the nearby rail yard. You can also ride a passenger train all the way to Hearst. Trains are essential for moving people and cargo, as well as a great way to enjoy the beauty of Algoma District.
