Sun after the Snow

My last railroad page showed some Wisconsin snow.
Then the sun came out.
.

In Plover, Wisconsin, a maintenance crew is sweeping switches.

.

The Biron switch job is coming past the taverns on the east side of the Wisconsin River in Wisconsin Rapids.

.

The next day the temperature is down to -10 f. That can put some delays into schedules.
I am waiting for a late train to clear highway 54.
This job should have run about 5 hours earlier in the dark of night, and maybe by the other route through Junction City?
Today they are going from Stevens Point thru Plover to Wisconsin Rapids.

.

.

They are easy to get ahead of.

.

Some icicles, but nothing serious today.

.

.

Lots of empty sand hoppers on the front end. Also on the back end.

.

Pulp wood in the middle.
And my fingers are too cold to enjoy hanging around to take a picture of snow drifting behind their FRED.

.

.

The train along Highway 54 isn't in a hurry, otherwise they will have to wait for this papermill job that is sorting clay tank cars at the Wisconsin River.
