Description:  Approaching Van Allen Road. Welded rail was installed along this stretch this spring, but surfacing work is still not finished and thus speed is still 10 MPH. Had been 25 on the jointed rail that was replaced!

WSOR 4007 is, incredibly, now part of an endangered species
Title:  WSOR 4007 is, incredibly, now part of an endangered species
Description:  I must have caught this locomotive leading six times in as many months when I first started railfanning the WSOR back in 2007. I was getting frustrated because I wanted to expand my roster! Now the WSOR SD40-2s are being relettered and numbered into the WAMX roster by parent company Watco. They will, thankfully, retain their red and gray paint and goose logo.

Title:  SLRG 101 leads the Graffiti (er, Polar) Express
Description:  Bit of a downer that Iowa Pacific couldn't have at least washed off the two ex-NJT coaches before deadheading this consist to Middleton. At least the 101 looks good and had a cool sounding M5 horn.
