We took a shopping trip to Marshfield, Wisconsin, and I watched some train stuff along the way.
The sand plant on the southeast corner of town looks quiet on a weekday.
|the Trackmobile and a wheel loader sit in the loading silo bay.|
|this CN Jordan Spreader has been on a siding for years.|
|At 1pm, a local comes in from the west.|
|The dash camera shows Peach Street, from under Veterans Parkway, state highway 13.|
|And while I am sticking with the bird in hand, a west bound auto rack comes through and I miss seeing those engines. That was long one, and had one mid-train loco. (no picture of that)|
I put up the quad copter. Looking west at the Weyerhauser door plant (with the tallest smoke stack), the yard office, and almost out of sight in the distance is the local at Peach Street.
Looking east. The Felkers stainless steel works is across the tracks.
A sand plant is in the distance. Squint at the little eastbound Marshfield job in the distance that finished picking up sand hoppers and leaves town.
And I don't remember a water tower in this location before, so I would guess that is less than 3 years old.
And I brought this picture out of the CD archive, from May 2013. It's a better view of that sand plant. This was a 10mp camera under a kite.
The sand plant was less than a year old then.
This page was photographed in December, 2016, and the last picture from May 2013
