Over the last two years, brushy areas have been cleaned up on the railroad.
It really helps visibility at road crossings.
Inside of the northwest wye in Rapids, the brush was removed.
|and a gravel base was added|
|here's an aerial picture from7 years ago, looking east at the wye, County Highway F, and the Rapids yard|
I figured this area would make a large storage area for rail and ties.
One day, a load was nearby, but didn't end up here afterall.
|Looking northwest, this was the line to Marshfield.|
|The wye can be busy. The gray stone over the gravel can stand up to real truck traffic.|
