Dates:10/8/1989 - 12/31/2018
Album Info:Most of the Chicago & Northwestern's lines in and around Wisconsin's capital city are a shell of their former selves thanks to abandonments by C&NW itself and later Union Pacific. WSOR leases from UP several branches that are stubs of these former main lines; to Reedsburg, Cottage Grove, and industries on the south side, and gamely keeps them alive. The former C&NW Monona Yard between E. Johnson Street and Commercial Avenue serves as the base of Madison area operations.

Title:  WSOR 4076 leads the T5 (JMA) into the yard
Description:  I was very surprised at the midday arrival of this train. For as long as I've been railfanning, this westbound Janesville to Madison wayfreight has been an evening or overnight departure from Janesville, and the eastbound (T6/MAJ) is well into its return trip by this time of day.

Future WAMX 3862?
Title:  Future WAMX 3862?
Description:  I almost didn't bother to take what seemed like a mundane roster shot of a WSOR GP38 that I've shot before. Then the next day I find out one of her sisters has been relettered/renumbered into the Watco roster as WAMX 3867!

Description:  3806 with 4003 and a long cut of cars coupled behind it were sitting facing south, but the power was actually for L863 bound for Rock Springs. They would eventually run around to the north end of the yard and head towards Waunakee with just three boxcars.

WSOR 4078 passes the dog park with the MG&E stacks and Capitol dome in the distance
Title:  WSOR 4078 passes the dog park with the MG&E stacks and Capitol dome in the distance
Description:  Leading T005 on the last leg into the yard after waiting on T007 to clear the power switch at Broom Street. The MG&E power plant no longer burns coal and is therefore no longer a rail customer, the spur is overgrown and its crossings are paved over. With that, there is no local work for WSOR in downtown Madison anymore.

Description:  I grew up within a mile of here, and this is the first time I've ever seen a movement on this track. Too bad the wigwags at the former Thornton Avenue (now Yahara River Parkway bike path) are long gone.

Weclome stranger
Title:  Weclome stranger
Description:  WSOR train T006 is an unusual sight here in the Northside neighborhoods off Sherman Avenue. The train originates in the ex-C&NW Monona Yard just to the south of this location, and travels south/east to its destination of Janesville. However, today the train shoved out of the yard and staged here on the Reedsburg branch to conduct its air test.

Description:  Since this T006 staged on the Reedsburg Sub for its air test, it crossed Sherman Avenue and Commercial Avenue (our location for this photo) before bypassing the yard on the main and continuing to the junction with ex-Milwaukee Road trackage at Monona for the rest of the trip to Janesville.
