Spent the last two weekends doing some railfanning in Southeast Wisconsin. Most of the time was at Duplainville, but the southside of Milwaukee was also a stop last Friday night. Here are some results from the outings.

Thanks for the nice comments.

A request for more WSOR. Here we go. This T4 was really late. It had busted a knuckle on the CN right at the Duplainville diamond. Not a good Friday.

Enjoy !!
