That wind is familiar to me

I've never been to Doyon, but according to Google it is only a few hours' drive from my location. I am due north from it across the 49th Parallel, residing in my childhood home on the outskirts of a tiny hamlet in southern Manitoba, Canada. I have seen, heard and felt that sign-torturing wind for almost eight decades! Cheers!

Railroad Depot

As interesting as the sign and the old tractor are, what are my eyes drawn to? The depot, railroad tracks and the baggage wagon!
