SE Wisconsin Railfan
Spent another nice Fall day at Wisconsin's Hot Spot Duplainville USA. The Canadian National seems to either running fewer longer trains or something because there traffic seems way down. The CP was quite busy between 12noon and 5pm. I wanted to leave early to try and avoid the traffic at Miller Park and the Brewers vs Cardinals game. I guess it didn't matter since the Brewers stunk up Miller Park. OH WELL !! On to St. Louis for the Battle of the Brew Cities.

Here are some highlights from Monday October 10, 2011


Westbound CP train at Brookfield, WI some interesting power.


Several different paint schemes


Blast from the past on the CN


Former CNW Dash-8 Now CN. Got dirty pretty quick.


Amtrak #156 Heritage unit leads Amtrak #8. Over the weekend it pulled the Friends of the #261 Fall Color Trip.


Friends of the #261 cars on the rear of Amtrak #8. Another nice surprise.
