Title:  With a roar from the dual 645s, WAMX 4171 and HLCX 6313 get L863 rolling
Description:  4171 is the former WSOR 4002. Looks like they've touched up that ugly rust spot that was on the engineer's side battery box when I caught it leading several times in 2017-18.

The weed sprayer does its job approaching Williams Road
Title:  The weed sprayer does its job approaching Williams Road
Description:  The train is passing "Rio East," a short manual-throw siding that is primarily used as an escape hatch for MoW gangs on the single track between Dodge West and Wyocena. Although, this is one of the few trains that could fit in it if necessary! About five years ago I saw the TEC train use it to meet opposing traffic.

Title:  Weed sprayer train 2WWA-03 ambles toward the Seier Road underpass
Description:  Despite waiting around a few more minutes at Columbus to catch Amtrak #8, I had ample time to get set up for this shot only about seven miles to the west. The weed sprayer train was limited to 25 MPH, and is slowing to a stop anyway to meet two at Dodge West.

Hurry Up and Wait
Title:  Hurry Up and Wait
Description:  Passed by the yard and saw WAMX 4188 and another SD40-2 idling on the main with a long train (probably a T006 for Janesville), lights on looking ready to roll. I quickly parked and set up, then stood here for over an hour with no sign of movement before I had to leave.

F Unit in Your Face
Title:  F Unit in Your Face
Description:  The deadheading OCS snakes through the curve-and-dip at Bowman Road in the Wisconsin Dells, one of my favorite locations for westbounds on the Tomah Sub. This angle nicely conceals the GP20C-ECO which stuck out like a sore thumb between the two FP9As, as the B-unit is currently shopped. 21st-century railfans may foam over seeing a CP GMD unit still in a weatherbeaten "Dual Flags" or "Multimark (Pac-Man)" scheme, but here is the ORIGINAL CP paint scheme! However 1401 is not an original CP F unit, having been built, ironically, for main competitor CN before serving with VIA Rail, then Nebkota Railway in the US before being acquired by CP in 1998.
