March and April, 2018. Wisconsin Rapids, Wisconsin, USA
A variety of locomotives pass through town. Often related to frac sand trains.
|The GTW looks abandonned under snow, but its just that it snowed 20 inches in one weekend in April|
|An east bound CN sand train coming to 25th Avenue|
|BNSF and NS power waiting on the wye|
|And the next morning, 2 of them are on a loaded sand train pulling up to 25th Avenue.|
And on another morning at 25th Avenue, an interesing combination is being assembled onto an eastbound loaded sand train.
Is that a GP-40 being added up front? But the number series say CSX 8069 is an SD-40.
Still, that's small compared to most for a sand train.
And I was too far away to see the number on the silver locomotive, further back.
|A lone BNSF moving across 25th Avenue in the middle of the day, I don't know why.|
|It looks like a GECX might be on a Woodtick one night.|
|A low aerial view of the yard office and locomotives by Dura Beauty Lane.|
|and that CP 8828 is the same locomotive seen in the first picture, weeks earlier.|
