Title:  Passing the derail just east of Tuttle Road
Description:  I thought they might have to stop to open it...nope. Crew of the loads that left the previous afternoon must have left it open, since there were no longer any cars in the Landmark facility.

Belle of the ball finally gets to strut her stuff
Title:  Belle of the ball finally gets to strut her stuff
Description:  On the west (head) end of GSKNEV-15 which arrived at South Janesville on the morning of Sunday the 17th was another KCS unit in "Southern Belle" paint, and this one was unique! During the lockdown phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, 4009 received this special version of the scheme with a "Dual Flags" motif (similar to CP's with the US/Canada flags) and a dedication to KCS's "Resilient and Essential" employees. The other side has the "compass" below the cab numbers display "S" and the same dedication in Spanish. While the train was parked at the yard, 4009 was barely visible from public property and never well-sunlit, so myself and many other local railfans were gnashing their teeth hoping it would move (a) in daylight and (b) while we were free to go catch it. I lucked out, getting done at my afternoon dentist's appointment about half an hour before the heads up post that they were on the move (they didn't find any damage from the gnashing, btw).

Title:  CP 2225 is the leader for the two Geeps and two cars of the returning M&P local
Description:  The train identified over the scanner as CP 3002 (the rare "old Beaver" GP38AC), so I'd expected that to be leading. Oh, well.

Redemption 11.5 years in the making
Title:  Redemption 11.5 years in the making
Description:  In January 2011, I blew a great chance to get this unit in the lead in daylight (by getting confused by some scanner chatter as to the train's location, and abandoning my setup location while the train was actually still approaching me).

Description:  I actually came out looking for the run to Cottage Grove which I'd observed on Wednesday afternoons earlier in the year. I've come to expect the Waterloo line run on Tuesdays and Thursdays. The only constant is change with WSOR operating patterns.

Beavers on the River
Title:  Beavers on the River
Description:  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that CP is giving at least a few of their SD40-2s the new Golden Beaver dip, along with PTC capability that makes them able to lead on U.S. mainlines once again. Also notice the DMVW car first up in the train, the previous day a westbound CP manifest had three ex-CN SD60Fs heading for service on that road.

About to duck under County M, westbound out of town
Title:  About to duck under County M, westbound out of town
Description:  Judging by the color of the rails in front of the train, there haven't been many (if any) runs to Lycon yet this year. The ready-mix plant is in the distance near top right; a segment of this ex-C&NW trackage was re-opened in fall 2014 after 18 years out of service so that WSOR could deliver aggregate loads for Lycon out of their yard in Madison. South (RR east) of the plant, cars are stored up to WSOR's end-of-track at Brooklyn. This L469 job is pulling 126 tanks.

Bonus BICB
Title:  Bonus BICB
Description:  I got a tip that this train was sitting here, waiting on the steam excursion to give up its track warrant just to the west. It consisted entirely of doublestack intermodal followed by a unit ethanol set (complete with buffer cars). Although the idea of GEVOs on a Class II still doesn't exactly sit well with me, the paint scheme looks good on them and they are rather clean compared to most of those belonging to the Class Is!
