L463
Title:  L463
Description:  The hikers are dwarfed by the train, which is dwarfed by the bluff. Devil's Lake State Park is a great place for sight-seeing, and the L463 turns plenty of heads as it ambles through.

WAMX 4223
Title:  WAMX 4223
Description:  This area of the lake was a popular spot amongst the ice fishers. Just out of frame on both sides are several additional shanties and groups of faithful fishermen. My shots from this spot were cut short by a Toyota Tacoma that drove right in front of me at an exaggeratedly slow pace. Apparently its occupants couldn't wait one more minute to spend the next several hours on the ice. Perhaps the driver was thick enough to think that I walked to the middle of the lake because I wanted a picture of his ugly mug sticking out of his %$@*^# truck. Oh well - a cold reminder that manners (and lack thereof) are learned traits, and some people are just immune to common courtesy.

Old and new WSOR schemes bracket a yellow bonnet
Title:  Old and new WSOR schemes bracket a yellow bonnet
Description:  In the "classic" (Gardner era) WSOR scheme, there are narrow red and gray chevron stripes on the short hood, and the thick gray stripe dips into a single fat chevron on the long hood. In the new version of the scheme applied by Watco starting in 2016, the thick gray chevron is moved to the short hood and the gray stripe wraps straight around the end of the long hood.

WAMX 4223 looks sharp in the autumn evening light as the T3 power rolls out of the fuel ramp
Title:  WAMX 4223 looks sharp in the autumn evening light as the T3 power rolls out of the fuel ramp
Description:  Ever wonder what a WSOR SD45 would look like? Wonder no more! Although, 4223 has been remotored with a 16-cylinder, 3K HP 645 to become the functional equivalent of an SD40-2. The unit spent about a year in service on the WSOR in its ex-CIT modified UP scheme (red/white nose chevrons). I'm fond of that scheme and would have liked to catch it then, but I gotta say this looks better!

Description:  This includes the SD45 carbody, 4223. I got a tip that it was leading a train from Janesville to Madison the previous afternoon, and spent an hour waiting trackside in the cold wind only to find out that they hadn't left Janesville yet. It arrived in Madison under cover of darkness.

Title:  WSOR 101, WAMX 4223, et al.
Description:  WSOR freight approaches WSOR 101, former MILW 202A or 32A, and the depot as it pulls into the former MILW yard at Horicon, WI on 13 Mar. '18. Train had two locomotives, WAMX 4223 and WAMX 4182. I realize the photograph is substandard in quality, but this is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to see this remarkable machine in person, so I’m posting it anyway.

Description:  After seeing that 4171 and 4223 were power for T007 yesterday, both long-hood-forward out of Madison, I had a hunch that 4223 might lead back east the next day. Followed the line and found it sitting here.

Sun actually out? Check! This last item was the one that had been missing until this point in the chase, as a pesky cluster of cirrocumulus clouds had parked themselves in front of the sun as the train left Middleton.

(Censored)
Title:  (Censored)
Description:  My reaction to seeing that they put one of the stupid gray doors on 4223, the SD45 carbody. I'm not sure if even 4170 (the new 40th Anniversary unit) makes up for this, since I probably won't catch it leading until it looks as ragged as 4183 does now.
