Have been on vacation (was down in New Orleans also)for the last week and I decided to put up some photos from the Southeast Wisconsin area. One of the highlights was that Amtrak #66 on the Heritage units has been running on the Milwaukee-Chicago Hiawatha train set. Also caught some action in and around Duplainville.

To see more shots check out Flickr


Amtrak #66 sits at the Milwaukee Amtrak Station


Amtrak #8 rounds the curve just minutes before the Hiawatha


Private Varnish "Sierra Hotel" on the rear of #8


#66 pushes the Hiawatha back to Chicago


Amtrak #835 leads the northbound Hiawatha earlier in the day


Southbound CN Train which had loco problems shortly after this photo was taken


Almost a Scribbins shot as CN trains meet at Duplainville


CN Train #198 passes under UP bridge at Sussex


Ken Weber Towing 75 Ton Rotater with Cement Truck in Tow at Sussex


UP MPRSS smokes a bit as it accelerates


UP #9388 seems to have been defiled with some graffiti


Smaller locomotives seem to be doing all the work
