Blasting Through
Title:  Blasting Through
Description:  Normally, trains would be eastbound on this line at this time of day, so this was a rare opportunity for light like this!

Title:  Wider view of this attractive EMD duo kicking up dust as it crosses Twin Lane Road
Description:  The trailing unit is one of two Helm (HLCX) units currently active on the WSOR system. It was built as a Ferrocarriles Nacionales de México SD40, since upgraded to SD40-2 standards. It is also one of very few (may be the last) units left in the maroon and blue paint scheme.

WAMX 3947 In Your Face
Title:  WAMX 3947 In Your Face
Description:  Normally this perspective is frowned upon, but the train is parked with no crew and the engines shut down. 3947 was the first addition that Watco made to the locomotive fleet on the WSOR system back in spring of 2014. It was soon joined by 3928 (As built, those two were sequentially numbered on the D&H and again on the UP), which received a WSOR 35th Anniversary scheme in the early summer of 2015 (the last with the thin chevron stripes on the short hood). 3947 remained in hideous patched UP yellow until the spring of 2017.

Old Soldiers
Title:  Old Soldiers
Description:  199's engineer has just disembarked as the train changes crews. He looks like he's seen a lot of miles for CP. So has 8135, but it has recently received a facelift from GE at Fort Worth.

Compare to Previous
Title:  Compare to Previous
Description:  Although it has been roaming the rails for less than three months in its new incarnation, the former CP 9601 has already begun to pick up a coat of grime around the edges, and cooked off most of the red paint on the exhaust stack. Even so, it still looks far better than any of its unrebuilt Golden Beaver sisters!

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.

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.

This bridge could previously be only glimpsed from the Beltline Highway in Madison. It was inaccessible from public property until the opening of the new Lower Yahara River Trail boardwalk last August.

A five-headed 281 blasts west approaching Salisbury Road
Title:  A five-headed 281 blasts west approaching Salisbury Road
Description:  Ho-hum leader, but the 2nd through 4th units are quite interesting. It's relatively unusual to see BNSF power on this line, and when it does show up it's usually on unit trains of some sort. The 4th unit is BNSF 740, one of the only three 700-series Dash 9s delivered in HII paint instead of the red and silver "faux Warbonnet" with BNSF lettering.
