Another August post. I know this post’s 2 topics don’t really go together, but I like them, so I’m doing this one for you now.
In Lewistown, Montana, there once stood 2 Wig-Wag signals on West Water Street. Down below is a photo of them from 2002.
The line was then operated by BNSF. At the time of the photo above being taken, there had been rumors that Lewistown did not want tracks in town anymore, and thus the trains only came to Lewistown about once a week.
However, in 2003, a storm washed away part of the track, and the line was taken out of service. Finally, in December 2005, BNSF got permission to abandon the Lewistown line. Then the word got around that the Wig-Wags and other railroad crossing signals there would be removed. The rails would also be pulled and the line would become a crosswalk trail. This finally happened during 2006.
Now, for your preschooler family member, he or she may have heard of a show called TEAM UMIZOOMI. Ever wondered who voiced Milli during the season 1 episodes (except the episode “The Butterfly Dance Show”, for unknown reasons)? Well, down below is a picture of the girl recording as Milli.
Her name is Sophia Fox, only it’s spelled “Sofia Fox” in the picture. She was born in 1999 in New York City.
Other voice actors for those episodes include Ethan Kempner and Donovan Patton.
That’s the end of this post. There’s just about 2 weeks before school resumes.
