Old and Graying
Title:  Old and Graying
Description:  The WSOR 30th Anniversary unit's special paint scheme has not aged well, with most of the nose and long hood decals peeled away or discolored. To add insult to injury, a mismatched all-gray door has been installed on the front conductor's side of the cab. Despite its less-than-stellar appearance, the former 4030 still earns its keep for WSOR's "new" (since 2012) parent company, Watco, as it pulls train T7 across Whitney Way bound for Prairie du Chien.

WAMX 4183 - Wisconsin & Southern (Watco)
Title:  WAMX 4183 - Wisconsin & Southern (Watco)
Description:  Former Wisconsin & Southern loco #4030 is now WAMX 4183 as part of the Watco roster. It is crossing South Pearl street next to the former WSOR roundhouse. Built by EMD in June of 1974 as UP #8007, it bounced around until landing finally as WSOR #4030. After the sale of the WSOR to the Watco Company, it was not repainted but renumbered WAMX 4183.

T006 returning to the Waukesha Sub main after working the industrial park
Title:  T006 returning to the Waukesha Sub main after working the industrial park
Description:  This spur was constructed in 2004 to serve Cargill and United Ethanol. In all my years railfanning, I'd never seen a train down here before. Surprisingly, the work is being done by T006 (the Madison-Janesville train) rather than T003 or T004, which pass by here as part of their regular route to/from Horicon via Waukesha.

Shoving the United pickup back to the rest of the train
Title:  Shoving the United pickup back to the rest of the train
Description:  The 30th Anniversary decals on WAMX 4183 (previously WSOR 4030, prior to that WSOR 4025 numbered/painted for that anniversary in 2005) held up reasonably well for 5-6 years, then started to look really bad around sometime in 2016. Either the short hood has recently been touched up, or the white goose logo that was originally on the nose has peeled off entirely. Underneath it all, the red and gray paint is still in good condition, so if they'd just paint that conductor's side door and scrape the decals all the way off it would look pretty good!

Title:  T006 power shoves their CP interchange cars down to Rockport Road
Description:  Never seen red and gray power down this track before. Although WSOR technically owns this part of it, in the past CP's (formerly ICE/IMRL) local has come into the WSOR yard to perform the interchange work.
