Wisconsin & Southern crew members with American flag (editor's title)

Wisconsin & Southern Railroad engineer Robert Hasheider (right) and conductor Brian Crieg pose with the flag-adorned nose of their locomotive on September 15, 2001. For his run from Madison to Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, and back, Hasheider purchased the flag to display in remembrance of the victims of the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks. Both crew members reported frequent signs of good will from people along their route.
