Nekoosa Railroading May 2011

We went to the Port Edwards garage sale weekend in May.
Picked up a cooler for traveling, and some train video tapes.

Then it rained a little and we went to Nekoosa for lunch.
The Domtar switch job was headed to the woodyard.
Also out of site to the left was one big CN with incoming loads at noon. That's a daily switch job from Rapids to Nekoosa.

It's rare for me to catch this Shuttlewagon near the road.
This is at the ERCO, former Vulcan Material, plant.

.

It can handle a half-dozen of these big hoppers.
Maybe it has Lionel magna-traction?

Don't linger taking pictures here. Security will visit you, and they and we don't need that.

One morning I saw this interesting picture in Wisconsin Rapids, and caught a blue truck, too.

.

It's a Loram rail grinder train entering Wisconsin Rapids.
I didn't have time to hang around, and I don't see these very often.
By later in the day they were reported to be further north at Mosinee on the Valley Line.

.
.

And an empty coal train went south on the Valley Line, about 5pm on a weekday.
This is the DPU on the rear. I expect to see 2 engines on the front and one on the rear,
but have heard that sometimes all 3 engines are on the front on an empty Wisconsin Public Service train.
