On July 20th, 2014, the boiler house was still standing.
|And by July 27, it's knocked down.|
|Looking east at the junction, east of the mill, July 20th.|
|And on July 27, they are picking up rails and ties.|
And I drove around to the north of the diamond, and sure enough,
they also pulled the ex-GBW line to Stevens Point.
Looking south at the diamond, at least where it used to be.
This is my map of Whiting, halfway between Stevens Point and Plover, Wisconsin.
The track shown by my RED lines is all gone now.
The north end of the former GBW line to Stevens Point.
The mainline still exists between Point and Plover, shown by my BLUE line.
Looking north from Jacobson Street.
A few years ago, I saw a southbound WC SW-1500 with 4 black tank cars here, coming back from Koch ashphalt.
I didn't get a good picture, but thought maybe sometime I'll see them again. Ha, no way anymore.
Sherman Street. Getting ready to pick up a pile of 80 lb rail, dated 1924.
Last Spring, they installed those blue signs on the crossing signal; something about, In case of emergency, call . . . . . .
. . . . . go to happier times showing 2004 Whiting rails when trains and tracks were still here.
Also see my web page about Whiting in the woods but you will have to use BACK to return to here, that's an old page.
