WSOR 3801
Title:  WSOR 3801
Description:  The 3801 returns from the Central Soya spur and passes over MX crossing, a diamond that's located in the middle of Monona Bay. I got really lucky with the timing and light in the shot, and why the hell not? It was my birthday! I'll also consider it a birthday present that I was not phoned in for tresspassing, but the throngs of die-hard tresspassing fisherman provide a good cover for a foamer.

WSOR 3803
Title:  WSOR 3803
Description:  3803 backs down the only active portion of what once was the IC's Madison-Freeport line. The short stub is about 4 blocks in length and is in detestable condition. The UW Heater plant stores empties there until the WSOR crews come to retrieve them. Also, remaining loyal to the seemingly idiotic city planning in Madison, the 3803 crosses one of MANY grade crossings that pass diagonally through a 4-or-more-way intersection
