Title:  Chasing a train on this sunny fall afternoon seems like a CAPITOL idea!

Rumbling around a curve along Syene Road
Title:  Rumbling around a curve along Syene Road
Description:  The occupants of the numerous residential developments that sprung up in this area during the intervening years were none too thrilled with the re-opening of the rail line. However, trains are not particularly frequent and usually run during the day.

Title:  L465 with WAMX 4172 long hood forward prepares to depart for the Prairie Sub
Description:  Road construction has started up and E. Johnson St. is down to one lane in each direction with long queues at each light cycle, so trains cause even more of a traffic headache than usual.

WAMX 4172 crosses the Yahara Parkway bike path as L465 departs
Title:  WAMX 4172 crosses the Yahara Parkway bike path as L465 departs
Description:  When I was a kid, this was a street named Thornton Avenue, and the crossing had C&NW-era gated signals. A little over a decade ago, most of it was narrowed to a bike/pedestrian path and the crossing became passive (signs only). Then a couple of years ago, new gated signals were installed!
