Album Info:My first three years of railfanning the Canadian Pacific's Tomah Subdivision and Watertown Subdivision, part of their Chicago to Twin Cities mainline across Wisconsin. This is one of the busier rail lines in Wisconsin and the only one with regular Amtrak service. Some days it seems like all you see is CP's red, widecab GEs, but patience and luck will yield a wide variety of classic and colorful diesel power.

Title:  CEFX 6005 and others
Description:  The Portage yard contained a colorful variety of locomotives and other interesting-looking equipment; but what with the prominently placed "No Trespassing" sign and several unpleasant encounters with law enforcement experienced by a railfan aquaintance, I decided against going in for a closer look.
