|The daily morning train from Plover to Stevens Point travels alongside of Okray Avenue.
Most of the cars are paper mill traffic for the Stevens Point mill.
And some refrigerated cars for french fries or onions from McCains Foods.
|They cross the Little Plover River just south of Whiting, Wisconsin.
The view is from the Green Circle Trail. This was the former right of way of the Wisconsin Central P (Portage) line, 60 years ago.
If I would have hurried ahead to the mill work buildings in the distance, I could have seen the train one more time.
The trail is the direct route, whereas the rails go an extra half mile west before swinging back to the original P-line.
|There's a new sign. I didn't know they were fixing things up. It's been 2 years since I've been here, even though I live only 3 miles away.
|There's some new granite, or maybe road mat (a local favorite from the pits east of Plover, with some gravel and clay that packs hard.)
