Back UP!!!
Title:  Back UP!!!
Description:  This is an Operation Lifesaver demonstration train for local media and law enforcement to witness firsthand the kind of idiocy train crews have to deal with on a daily basis. They get a good example here as this truck quickly backs out from under the gate as it comes down on the cab.

Title:  WAMX diesels, two of them displaying the home colors, hold court
Description:  The WSOR remains an interesting place under Watco ownership. The classy red and gray is still king, albeit with new reporting marks and numbers. Then you have the oddities like 4219 and the HLCX units to add variety.

Old and new WSOR schemes bracket a yellow bonnet
Title:  Old and new WSOR schemes bracket a yellow bonnet
Description:  In the "classic" (Gardner era) WSOR scheme, there are narrow red and gray chevron stripes on the short hood, and the thick gray stripe dips into a single fat chevron on the long hood. In the new version of the scheme applied by Watco starting in 2016, the thick gray chevron is moved to the short hood and the gray stripe wraps straight around the end of the long hood.

Four weeks since we were last here...
Title:  Four weeks since we were last here...
Description:  ...another sunny Friday L863 trundles south across the Lake Wisconsin bridge, but the scene is much different. An abrupt transition from much below normal to much above normal temperatures and excessive rainfall resulted in an explosion of greenery in early May.

Title:  WAMX 4219 hauls the L863 across the Lake Wisconsin bridge
Description:  To my surprise, this unit was painted into Watco's new version of the WSOR scheme from their "Yellow Bonnet" scheme sometime in the late fall of 2017. My long-hood-foward curse on this line continues. Any time I catch a single-engine train, it's always LHF no matter which way it's going.

Description:  While the majority on the WSOR system have been replaced, the Reedsburg Sub remains a relative bastion for classic crossing signals such as these Griswold pedestal gates.

Title:  WAMX 4219 poses on the main after arriving at the yard with L863
Description:  This is a unique unit on the WSOR, with its headlight mounted on the short hood instead of between the cab numberboards, hinting at its CP heritage (although the bell has been moved to the traditional underframe location). The frame stenciling denotes this unit as an SD40-2, although it was built as an SD40 and retains the shorter frame and Flexicoil trucks (rather like the ex-C&O former 407X series, which are designated SD40M-2). It is also the only unit with a red goose logo on the short hood, placed in the middle of the thick gray chevron (presumably due to the headlight). The other units painted to WSOR colors by Watco have a white logo placed in the red area near the top of the hood. The locomotive was painted in this scheme sometime in the late fall of 2017, after spending over a year roaming WSOR territory in the Watco "Yellow Bonnet" scheme. There was also a four-axle unit on the system in that scheme that has since been repainted red and gray, although I don't know the number as I've never seen it.
