Foreign Road Visitors in Sunny Southeast Wisconsin
Author: kschmidt626

On what was one of the nicest Saturday in several weeks the railfans came out to see and the railroads didn't disappoint.  With blue skies and temps in the 20's.  Yes the 20's are nice after sub zero weather earlier in the week.  The trains were running at Duplainville USA in Sussex, WI.  Almost every train on both the Canadian Pacific and Canadian National had foreign or lease power.  Plus the added bonus of watching a bald eagle do some hunting near the tracks.  It was a great day.  Enjoy the photos.  

Shot 1. Pair of CSX units pull northbound manifest train across the diamond with the CP
Shot 2. One of the only trains on the CN with only CN power on the point.  This was a very long train 
Shot 3. Eastbound CP train with Progress Rail lease unit.

The final surprise of the day was watching a bald eagle go hunting just north of the CP tracks.  What a sight.  AWESOME !!   I believe he himself a bunny rabbit

CP has had 6 of Progress Rail's "Yellow Canaries" running around for a while now. Of course just 6 of them tend to get lost when the roam across CP's system. As far as I know they have been everywhere except east of Montreal and to Albany.
