CN 2839
Title:  CN 2839
Description:  A CN train heads railroad east across the E. 14th Avenue grade crossing in Oshkosh. Five units are on the head of this train running on what was originally CNW right of way along Lake Winnebago. The trains roll through Oshkosh at speed up to 35 MPH, thanks in part to a grade crossing sfaety and reduction program in the 1990's. This program came about as the city citizens hoped to eliminate the use of train horns and open up blocked grade crossings faster. This seems to have worked out fairly well, though Oshkosh still has it's share of train-pedestrian accidents.

 Former Chicago and Northwestern Yard
Title:  Former Chicago and Northwestern Yard
Description:  It was noted in the late winter of 2015/2016 that the Canadian National had quit using the yard in Oshkosh. They had been using the yard for the local (not based in Oshkosh) to store cars and sort them for the local industries. When it was noticed the yard was emptied, optimistic thoughts were that it was going to get some work done to keep it viable. Perhaps, an increase in local business was coming in the future. This was not to be the case. The yard tracks were torn out in the summer of 2016.The four tracks branching off to the right of the main are now gone. The siding on the left and it's two spurs are still in use. The turnout at the bottom serves Blended Waxes, a few hundred feet behind the photographers point, and the other one is sometimes (very rarely) used to load pulp wood. The sorting that was done here is now done on the Pluswood spur on the former CNW line that branched from Oshkosh to Hortonville and beyond. This line is now truncated within Oshkosh, just beyond Pluswood. The end of the line there has a long runaround track and is where the CN now does it's storing and sorting. Obviously, the capacity of a yard is no longer required to serve what industry is left in Oshkosh.

CN 2833
Title:  CN 2833

Description:  A sharp looking rebuild in Portage. A testament to the fact that most prototype loco's are better kept than many model railroaders tend to depict. (Though many of those models are incredible pieces of work.)

GTW 4911
Title:  GTW 4911
Description:  Having passed through Saint Paul Switch and crossed Highway 32, a CN turn is entering Hilbert via Hilbert Junction. Hilbert Junction is where the old Milwaukee Road branched off to get to Menasha and the Fox Cities from its line that went to Ontonagon, Michigan, from Milwaukee. The Soo Line had rights over the Milwaukee from Menasha to Hilbert Junction where it then continued on it's own rails to Manitowoc. These lines are now all owned by the CN.

WSOR 3803
Title:  WSOR 3803
Description:  A train of ballast hoppers being pulled past the Badger Mining Corporation loop track at Utley. Though Utley is still recognized as a geographic location, the city that was once located here no longer exists. This shot was taken from the location of the Utley single room school house which was built in 1844 and closed in 1942. In the late 1800's, Utley had a population of around 500, with the towns main activity being centered around The Wisconsin Granite Company's Quarry No. 69 ( 1909 The Reporter, Volume 42). The town gradually ceased to exist over the next few decades, with the school outlasting the community, serving the children of the rural surrounding area. The quarry mined black granite for use in larger cities, mainly Chicago. Today the quarrying in the immediate vicinity is done by Badger Mining, shipping a tremendous amount of sand, but black granite can also be found piled up.

Wooden Trestle Spanning a Branch of the Menominee River
Title:  Wooden Trestle Spanning a Branch of the Menominee River
Description:  On the Wisconsin side of the Menominee River, the CNW ran along Water Street and had this branch come off to access an island with multiple water front businesses at this Great Lakes port city. In the early 20th Century, there was a myriad of tracks in this industrial area. Today, there is but the remains of one spur that runs to a Waupaca Foundry facility. It is out of service, and mostly torn up. This trestle remains as the most visible piece of that line.

Bridging the Peshtigo River
Title:  Bridging the Peshtigo River
Description:  The former Chicago Northwestern bridge across the Peshtigo River. The Line is now part of the CN empire, but there isn't much work for the railroad in Peshtigo now. The Badger Paper Mill Inc. spur is out of service and mostly torn up, though the mill is still in operation. There is a short passing siding/run around track in town, but the only business that looks like it could easily get rail service is the Peshtigo Feed Mill, and that looks to be a very rare occurrence, if ever at all either.

Chicago & Northwestern station
Title:  Chicago & Northwestern station
Description:  Looking toward Hall Ave at the former CNW station currently used by the CN. Marinette was a two railroad town, served by the Milwaukee Road and the CNW. The Escanaba and Lake Superior replaced the Milwaukee's presence in town. The CNW was replaced by the Union Pacific, very briefly, who in turn spun it off to the Wisconsin Central. The WC was then bought by the Canadian National, who still runs through town and works with the ELS. The ELS line to here from Crivitz is usually plugged with stored cars, yet the ELS keeps a switcher in the area (engine house located across the river in Menominee, MI) to work the industries. Sources indicate that the switching in Marinette and Menominee is mainly done by ELS crews, with the CN taking care of the incoming and outgoing traffic.

WSOR 3813
Title:  WSOR 3813
Description:  A WSOR (WATCO) train fould the County Highway FF grade crossing in Fisk as it picks up some GACX cars from a siding. The loco's are on the 1910 built bridge across Eight Mile Creek, which has since been replaced over the summer of 2016. The neat Old Style sign at the local bar has also met it's demise over the latter half of the 2016 summer, due to vandalism. I have noticed these types of signs are starting to disappear as beer marketing practices have been changing.

Description:  After swapping cars at the Expera Specialty Solutions (formerly Thilmany Paper) mill, the CN local to kaukauna from Neenah climbs back uphill from the Fox River to get back to the mainline. Along the way upgrade, the train crosses an old CNW swing bridge across a navigational canal for the Fox River. The canal was out of service and dry for many years, but the locks and navigation system were all re-opened from Green Bay to Lake Winnebago in the fall of 2015. Shortly thereafter, the last lock to Lake Winnebago was closed due to an invasive species of fish being found below the lock.

CN 2574
Title:  CN 2574
Description:  Between Neenah and Oshkosh, a fast moving CN freight soars along the former Soo Line / Wisconsin Central main at Winnebago. The C&NW right of way through the Fox Valley to Green Bay is about 50 feet to the right of the rails. The C&NW right of way no longer has rails or ties, it would make a great trail along an active rail line. Some time ago, there was a spur off the C&NW line here to the state hospital, known as Winnebago. This line has certainly changed over the last couple decades. Twenty years ago it was a busy line for the modern Wisconsin Central, with a fairly large number of local industries to serve. Now, though the number of local businesses has diminished, the main is busier than ever as part of a trans-con for the CN.

Description:  A local spots a boxcar at RGL. RGL is a logistic company formed in 2013. A May 10, 2013 news release indicates RGL was formed by the melding of Leicht, Checker Logistics and RGL Specialty Services. A Georgia Pacific facility is the back drop to this scene. The rails are parallel to State Street here and served many industries from this spur, the numbers of which have been on the decline. Fortunately, as new industrial parks develop in the area, new rail customers appear. The buildings in the new industrial parks have no where near the character and architecture as these older buildings though.
