WSOR 4001 & 4053 on MJ
Title:  WSOR 4001 & 4053 on MJ
Description:  The MJ crew cuts through a marshy area just after passing under the beltline on their way back home to Janesville, WI. The two SDs, as big as power comes on the WSOR, pull hard on 82 cars. The 4053's prior owner is obvious, but I wouldn't wait in earnest to see her in new red & silver paint anytime soon. The paint shop at WSOR's Horicon facilities is known for its quality work, and there's a backlog of contract work with other railroads to be done. The Horicon shop is full of foreign power waiting for a coat!

Rise and Shine
Title:  Rise and Shine
Description:  The sun's just peaking over the clouds on the horizon this morning as the JM heads through the isthmus. The crew has a heavy train of 82 cars this morning. The train is about to cross Ingersoll street with some of Madison's priciest condos for a backdrop.

Morning Dew
Title:  Morning Dew
Description:  The JM crew is less than a mile from E. Johnson street and the WSOR's yard there. The sun had a brief stretch and yawn before pulling the cloudy covers back over its face this morning, evidenced by the barely visible capitol building in the background. The capitol looked amber in color less than 10 seconds before I took this shot, precisely why I came to this location. No biggie though... the 82-car train was a good enough show on its own.

Colorful lashup
Title:  Colorful lashup
Description:  There's no shortage of color in this lashup. The 40s belong to WSOR while the green loco, technically a GP10, is headed to WSOR's Horicon, WI shops for a paint job. The WSOR received this locomotive from the BNSF at Crawford. Contract paint work keeps the shops busy at Horicon and might be a reason why WSOR's newest additions to their roster (like Mean Mrs. Mustard here) don't wear the sharp red and silver WSOR scheme.

Autumn colors came early this year...
Title:  Autumn colors came early this year...
Description:  A colorful lashup leads this Janesville-bound freight as it departs Madison. A J2 crew is working the return portion of this train today. Ordinarily it would have left town for Jville earlier in the morning, but the timing and 70 or so cars in the consist suggest that there was a lot of on-line work for the JM crew.

Title:  You can tell where the reflective strips are on WSOR 4053
Description:  My camera flash catches the recently unveiled "Grow Wisconsin" Map Unit as it leads 3808 and 3806 out of the Zalk Joseph's spur. From here they will head downtown to couple up to their train, then 3806 will lead the way as they continue towards Madison. The JMA is typically a wee-hours train, so to see it in any light at all is remarkable.
