Album Info:This is really a long branch, what is left of the Chicago & Northwestern line between Milwaukee and Green Bay. It sees 2-3 unit trains a week serving the coal power plant in Sheboygan. A nighttime wayfreight serves industries in the small towns along the way, and ferrys general freight to and from Sheboygan. A separate local switches out industries in town. A portion of the Shoreline Sub is also used by the Granville turn to access its own branch line at Wiscona.

Identity crisis
Title:  Identity crisis
Description:  About one-quarter of the C&NW logo on the nose was left intact when this locomotive was patched. That, coupled with the the easily visible CNW number (8816) on the engineer's side of the long hood make this particular locomotive a coveted catch among C&NW fans. Almost as good as 8646 and 8701!

Title:  The wigwags of Saemann Avenue, part the first
Description:  These iconic C&NW crossing signals are becoming ever harder to come by. Another set across town was removed less than a year ago and replaced with new flashing lights, even though they were on a track that sees even fewer trains than this one.

Pulling out of Schreier underneath the mainline bridge
Title:  Pulling out of Schreier underneath the mainline bridge
Description:  Ever hear something described as "looks like a model railroad scene in real life?" You have to see this one to believe it. Immediately adjacent to the scenic river bridge, the line to Kohler splits off on top of a bluff and the Schreier spur attaches to it. The spur descends a steep grade and through an S-curve along the riverbank before looping back under the mainline while crossing the street at grade, all with the imposing Schreier towers in the background!
