Happy Easter!

Frohe Ostern!

An unused railroad spur. It curves off the main spur that services one of the last working coal mines left in our area. Decades ago this one went to another coal mine. I've always felt the urge to photograph it. I love the curves and how it meanders through the meadow at the south end of Scofield Reservoir. In my lifetime I've never saw a train use this spur.

Happened to catch a setting sun in near perfect alignment with some railroad tracks. Traffic was tight so I had to shoot it through the passenger side window. Not much I could do about the power cord!

Heavy hoar frost brought me out in the cold this day to capture some of the beauty.

The day is done for Adam and Robert, as this UN-eventful trip from Madison to Reedsburg comes to a close. No landslides, off gridder's catching rides, avalanches, ice storms, Moose,

etc, just satisfied customers and a sense of pride that goes along with a successful trip.

Railroad Motorcar, sometimes called a “Speeder”. Smaller models, like this one, were used routinely to inspect the many miles of track for defects. Larger versions would carry half a dozen workers and pull a few trailers loaded with spikes and tools, to handle track maintenance. Although these “speeders” have a top speed of only about 30 m.p.h., they were so nicknamed because compared to the manually powered pump cars they replaced, they were much faster.


Thanks to Brian Plant for a last minute tip off, I was able to get the following series of photos.

Here are the Final Two, CNW 8701 and 8646 and they look great. This is one of the best schemes worn by a Dash-9. I found them switching in UP Belvidere Yard coupled onto a cut of cars after they came in on UP Train ABEBE 02 at 06:19 this morning. I talked to the UP MYO on duty and asked for permission to take a few shots. I ended up with pictures and a Chicago Service Unit Cap.
