Image 5  has CP train 694  roaring upgrade through West Salem, Wi  following Amtrak 8.  They had to set out 99 sand empties at River Jct, Mn  and take rest of train to the  Unimin Sand plant in Tunnel City, Wi.
               
Image 6 later in afternoon has train 471, off the  same County "C" highway bridge in West Salem, Wi  with Heritage 7012 on point.  We call this the DM&E connection as it heads west at Minnesota City,  Mn   on what was once the old C&NW,  then the DM&E  now  CP.

Have a great weekend,

PWM
