CN Rail shuts down crossing

!The rail crossing that was the site of the crash between a logging truck and a CN Rail train has been shut down. The crossing has been closed since the accident occurred and is disrupting, for many, the logging business in Burns Lake. Other routes into the Decker Lake Forest Products sawmill are either too costly or too risky for logging trucks to navigate. - Laura Blackwell photo
