Sometimes a simple rail scene presents itself.
A train is being built in Wisconsin Rapids, and some cars for it are waiting in Junction City, 9 miles away.
It's just a short wait at the yard limit to get a train order and get out on the road.
And today, this move starts with backing the locomotive to Junction City.
. . . . Long hood forward.
|This is a lot different than a century ago, when there were telegraphed orders, steam engines, and a caboose for a trip out of the yard limits|
