September 2006 Photographs
Wisconsin, page Two
On Saturday, September 2nd, I went hunting for a train.
The first catch was this north-bound at Owen. I caught the on-coming shot, but the sun was against me so here's the better lit going away view.

I liked the sky in this shot...
In the small hamlet of Loyal, Wisconsin, I found this interesting display. The Greenwood Branch of the Soo Line Railroad once ran through this town, but this display is all new.
This west-bound (north-bound?) train is coming to a meet at Marshfield, Wisconsin.
An interesting graphic design on the side of this Canadien National intermodal container.
Here's the same train again, storming through Owen, Wisconsin on his way to Superior, Wisconsin; Duluth, Minnesota; and the western coast of Canada.
Later that evening, I was able to catch up with Train 406 after it roared through Cadott and get this shot in the evening light.

That second unit is one of the full-bodied SD40's with the "Draper Taper." On the Canadian Pacific these units are called "Red Barns" thanks to their all-red paint scheme.

Sunday, September 3, 2006.
The morning train is running into the sun, and makes a perfect setting for one of the last of Wisconsin Central's SD40-2's.

I caught this guy before church ;-) Doncha love it when a plan comes together?

Train 406 just east of Boyd late in the afternoon of September 3, 2006. A pair of Alstom EMD rebuilds lead a Burlington GE.

The railroad has cleared out a lot of underbrush on the Minneapolis sub; compare this shot to photos taken in July of this year.

An interesting graffiti-clad boxcar. I wish these taggers would be more respectful of railroad property...
