Wisconsin Central leads the way
Title:  Wisconsin Central leads the way
Description:  12T and 13T were the two trains that tended to get the unusual power. 40T and 41T commonly got CN power, and sometimes IC, rarely GT power, though on a couple of occasions a DWP unit showed, but it was generally all in the CN family. But the Allentown trains could be a treat, getting anything from a run of the mill set of wide cab GEs to ex Santa Fe warbonnets and UP flags, which were still something of a big deal then. Todays 12T is a winner, a pair of WC SD 45s leading an ex MPI lease unit now part of the Helm fleet, and an NS 4 motor, in bright sun with a deep mantle of snow. We see the train approaching the 45 MPH curve at MP 220, as it makes its way toward Owego.
