some trains around central Wisconsin

The black SW is fetching cars from the old Port Edwards paper mill storage tracks that are east of Highway 73.
It replaced a big red trackmobile.
This picture was last Spring, and since today is in August,
there's always a chance that it could be changed out again if it is leased.

It works at Erco, west of Port Edwards. This picture is from 8 years earlier.


30 miles south is Adams, Wisconsin.
Full of frac sand hoppers.
Here's the west end of the yard where 14th Drive crosses 4 tracks.


Sand hoppers are on the tail of a westbound train leaving the Vetter's area of Stevens Point

And you have to drive faster than I did to beat it to Junction City, where they turn south to Rapids.

(a mile over that hill, last week, a train smacked a tractor and manure wagon, and the tractor driver was killed.) .

An eastbound Potash train has the main at Rocky Run, west of Point


Back at Point, the Plover switch job is locked into the Vetter siding waiting for a train to leave track 19 and un-block them.
Which might explain why some days they get back to Plover much later than 2 pm.
