No - that would be a disarmed hunter!

Also one report of an armed hunter on the north end of Stoughton - hopefully he's seeking turkey and not GOOSE.

I guess if it was an unarmed hunter, they may not be hunting.

Germantown Derailment

Checked out the Germantown derailment. Its about 1/2 mile east of Goldendale Rd. Looks like some hoppers are still on their sides, but it looks like the track is open.

Try and post some pix later.

A404 departed Junction City at 08:35 with CN 8930-2343-SFEX 4204. Third unit is the MLW C424 that drew quite a bit of attention after it was spotted at the Proctor engine house recently.

So they must be hotter than 235F to keep it fluid. So how log will it stay that hot inside the car given cold and/freezing/very cold temps outside? It would seem to me that the load would have to be heated at its destination for unloading.

WSOR's L595 (HK) on Monday

icecardinal
 

Good morning,
 
After hearing that the WSOR was still in town yesterday I decided to see if I could get them in some nice afternoon light on the way out of Oshkosh.  I did get a couple shots.
 
Just SW of Oshkosh the three GPs (3804, 3805 & 3809) roll through some farm country.
 
Nose on - you can see a little more of the track profile.
 
I decided to give chase to near Elo, WI but time and light fading dictated that I go no further.
 
One other nice 'bonus' was my first look at the newly repainted 3809.  It's been out of the booth at Horicon for a little while but it sure looked nice.  I created a top/bottom shot of before and after paint.
 
Thanks for looking.

Around the CN Neenah Sub Last Weekend (pictures)

icecardinal
 

Good morning,
 
I thought I'd share a few of my shots from last Sunday (Nov. 6).
 
Train A446 heads south from Neenah, WI.  RTC has directed them to "highball their Neenah work" so they do as requested.  IC 1015 is leading.
 
Train M342 normally doesn't stop in Neenah.  Today wasn't an exception.  CN 5789 leads a BCOL Dash 8M and an IC Dash 9 south through the plant at Neenah South.
 
I decided to follow a local train around for a bit.  L533 works industries along the Neenah area on the Manitowoc Sub on Sundays and IC 3108 was the power for the 4 car train.  There are some nice bridges on this route...but my timing was off, so I settled for a nose on shot in "Menasha Yard".
 
A pair of repainted units (one each WC and GTW) share duties as YNE158 - the day yardswitcher in Neenah.
 
One of the better surprises of the day was Q199.  I had a reliable tip that it had a few extra locomotives.  A few meaning 10 in total.
 
Those were the highlights of my day.  Thanks for looking.

-L523 is in Appleton dropping off cars.
-L595 is out possibly at Anton waiting on traffic.
-Q199 is moving from Weyauwega after meeting two there.

My guess is A416 and L576 are minutes out from Neenah, in that order.

-A491 is in Dixie siding waiting its turn into Neenah.
-CN 2438 is leading coke empties south from Green Bay and has track authority as far south as Wrightstown for now.
