Simmering
Title:  Simmering
Description:  The 105-year-old Mike quietly hisses steam into the chilly night air as it sits outside the Elkhart Lake depot during community Santa Train festivities.

Lighting up the cold winter's night
Title:  Lighting up the cold winter's night
Description:  Of course my lens fogged up as the train approached, I must have breathed on it just so. Still, given my lack of good results with pan shots in the past, I'm rather pleased with how these turned out at 1/20 sec.

Another eastbound manifest delayed by the Holiday Train gets underway from Mile Creek Siding
Title:  Another eastbound manifest delayed by the Holiday Train gets underway from Mile Creek Siding
Description:  The area of the Tomah Sub between Lyndon Station and Mauston is a bit off the beaten path, as the ROW diverges from the parallel US 12/WIS-16. You have to take secondary roads to stay with the tracks, and I had never really done so until now. It's a rather scenic, secluded area, and I'll have to keep it in mind for future shots!

CP 2246 leads a Holiday Train as it has done every year since 2014
Title:  CP 2246 leads a Holiday Train as it has done every year since 2014
Description:  Prior to that year, the Holiday Trains had been hauled exclusively by AC4400CWs since their inauguration in 1999. In 2014 and '16, 2249 hauled the US train while 2246 was assigned to Canada's train. This is also the first year I've caught it when the sun has been out for its daytime run through south-central Wisconsin, which brings out the clean red paint but dampens the colorful animated Christmas lights.

November Chill
Title:  November Chill
Description:  After a relatively mild start to fall (seems to be the norm in the Midwest this decade), temperatures dropped precipitously this week in conjunction with the first accumulating snowfall of the 2018-19 winter season. It's not quite enough to make a solid coating on the grass, but it does help set the scene as the 105-year-old Mike makes its annual short run for the Hartford Christmas parade.

PGR 41 leading a sand train to Norma, crossing 157th Avenue south of town
Title:  PGR 41 leading a sand train to Norma, crossing 157th Avenue south of town
Description:  My parting shot of this train. What could get me to break off a chase of a sharp-looking SD45 carbody in finally-good light? Earlier while at the bridge in downtown Bloomer, I'd heard UP 1989, the Rio Grande Heritage Unit, get a track warrant on the Chippewa Falls Sub (same line as the WN, from Norma south to Eau Claire)!

Title:  Four blue EMDs pass a green one and a yellow one
Description:  This photo encapsulates exactly why a visit to the WN was on my bucket list. Have I mentioned it was absolute nirvana for a fan of classic, colorful standard cab EMD power like myself? After making pickups at the northernmost two of the four closely spaced sand plants, this train bypassed the southern two including Superior Silica here at New Auburn.

Look behind you!
Title:  Look behind you!
Description:  I didn't expect yet another northbound so close behind the last, and parked here anticipating a leisurely wait for CN 6013 South. Instead, I heard the rumble of EMDs off to my RIGHT (east, or RR south) and leapt out of the car to set up. Unfortunately in my haste I double-bumped the record button on my video camera, and stopped the video seconds after starting it.

Description:  This snuck up on me as I was scoping out Iron Junction, but I was easily able to beat it to Keenan. They had to slow for a maintenance crew to flag them over the crossing, as the signals were out of service.

Title:  CN 2857 leads the OSVVP-03 EB oil train over Buffalo Lake
Description:  This bridge, one of the scenic highlights of the Adams Sub, is quite the hidden gem not being visible or accessible from any major roads. You have to go into a dead-end subdivision on narrow, winding roads and find the small public boat launch from which the bridge can be photographed.

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.

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.
