Working on the Railroad - A work crew from Canadian National Railroad was in town on April 19th to drop off rail road ties next to the track. The RR will be working on the main line through town for 16 days in June. Photo by Mike Leckband.

Over the past few weeks, workers from the Canadian National Railroad have constructed a massive section of track in Cherokee. The new section of track is one piece, and will be placed on the trestle that crosses over the Little Sioux River near Spring Lake Park. The Canadian National Rail Road will have the new section in place by the end of June.
