On the last weekend of April, the town of Brooklyn, Wisconsin holds the "Depot Days" festivities which include rides in privately-owned railroad "speeder" MoW cars on the out-of-service former Chicago & Northwestern line through town. The rides went ahead despite the inclement weather that weekend in 2009.
Here we ride an original Canadian National Fairmont speeder (pictured at 6:47) from just north of State Highway 92 in Brooklyn (the rails are removed from both crossings in town) to the brand-new bridge and realigned track at Jefferson Street in Oregon. We were probably the first paying passengers to ride the rails across that bridge.
