The sea gulls are resting on the Wisconsin River railroad bridge in Wisconsin Rapids.
They stay there until a train is a hundred feet away.
This Biron job is an hour late in the afternoon and they want to get home to the yard,
but the paper mill switcher is also busy flying over the crossing and blocking them.
(is the crossing protected by manual gates or a stop sign?).
. . . . That's GMTX 200 and an empty bulkhead pulpwood car.
And away they go. All these boxcars came from the Biron mill.
Good traffic, considering these paper mills were in chapter 11 last year.
|Then some empty clay tank cars, one starch hopper, and pulpwood flats.|
I have gone back to an old photo program to get smaller file sizes for pictures for a web page.
Some might get blurry if you zoom in a lot. But it saves space for the server and downloads very fast.
If you want the full size picture, please contact me. An e-address is in the box on my index page.
