Trains and Snowflakes

Indoors, we have a plant blooming.
And I don't remember what it is.
It was her birthday present last year,
and in the middle of this Winter we didn't expect a bloom.

Outdoors, it has snowed some more.

Plover snow
.

Wisconsin Rapids had some lite snow. Both of these are switch engines moving around.

stuffing the sidings in Rapids with empty sand hoppers

.

The switch engines are in the dark, and I didn't walk up the snowmobile trail to get closer.

.

.

It can snow so hard. Two inches an hour.
They park the hoppers in the yard to catch it so they don't have to shovel it.

.

Here's a train routed Wisconsin Rapids - Plover - Stevens Point.
They've got everything, sand hoppers, boxcars, clay tanks, empty pulp cars, double stacks.
I don't know if this is the same train that usually goes Rapids - Junction City - Point.

. . . . Here's a possibility for a model railroad.
I might run this train all the way to the east side of Plover,
then tie the local Plover switch engine on the rear and pull it up the wye and the P-line all the way north to Point,
so it arrives with the power on the east end and ready to roll. .
