Description:  A CN local crosses S. Outagamie St. and approaches W. Prospect Ave. as it heads southeast via former C&NW rails at Appleton, WI, at on 23 Sep. '20. Train was headed for Kimberly and Combined Locks. This intersection of W. Prospect Ave., S. Outagamie St., and W. Haskel St. was recently reconstructed (and reconfigured), as part of the much needed reconstruction of W. Prospect Ave. from these tracks to S. Seminole Rd. This portion of W. Prospect Ave., from S. Mason St. westward, used to be named Carver St. The portion of W. Prospect Ave. from S. Mason St. to S. State St. was W. 2nd St. Prospect originally only ran from S. State St. to what is currently the intersection with S. Appleton St./S. Oneida St.

CN 3151
Title:  CN 3151
Description:  A CN container train crosses the Rat River and bisects the Rat River Wildlife Area as it speeds southeast via former SOO rails at Medina Junction, WI, on 24 Sep. '20. Train had two locomotives, CN 3151 and CN 3848. The locomotives are passing the foundations of the old SOO facilities here. These foundations rest along both sides of the tracks about 700' northwest of the actual junction. If the direction of view in the photograph (http://www.wisconsinhistory.org/Content.aspx?dsNav=N:4294963828-4294963814&dsRecordDetails=R:IM24898) on the Wisconsin Historical Society website is labeled accurately, a coal tower and shed stood on the left side of the tracks and a water tower and another shed to the right. The CN microwave tower in the background stands at the approximate site of where the SOO/WC Medina Station depot once stood on Hwy. M.

GTW 4623
Title:  GTW 4623
Description:  GTW 4623 crosses W. 2nd St. while working the CN, former C&NW, yard at Appleton Junction, WI, on 25 Sep. '20. Carter's Caboose, 1428 W. 2nd St., a small, old, rail side tavern, is partially visible to the right. It dates to at least 1887, when it was a grocery store operated by Peter Leininger. By 1901 it was a sample room operated by John Sigl. By ‘30 it was a soft drink establishment owned by Hubert J. Merkel and August F. Brandt (Prohibition was still in effect). By ’36 it was a tavern operated by Albert Giesen, owned by Mrs. Gretchen Merkel. By ’38 it was Bob’s Tavern, still owned by Mrs. Merkel. It was the Junction Tavern from at least ’43-’71, still owned by Mrs. Merkel until at least ’60 (there were at least two different owners between ’67-’71). At some point in the ‘70s it became Pete’s Junction (possibly Palomino Pete’s Junction). It was called Netticoat Junction ca. the ‘90s (owned by Joanne M. ‘Nettie’ Nett). I haven’t learned how long it has been Carter’s Caboose. The former Appleton Wood Products Co. factory, now part of the Miller Electric facility, is partially visible beyond that. Built in 1916, the walls include some nice, decorative brickwork (including cast or carved keystones depicting bowling pins above the windows), which Miller obscured with cheap metal siding at some point after they bought it ca. 1975.

CN 5340
Title:  CN 5340
Description:  CN 5340 parallels Union St. and passes the former Monroe St. grade crossing as it sorts cars at the north end of the former SOO yard at Neenah, WI, on 25 Sep. '20. The area between the tracks and Union St., from Main St. to Monroe St., used to be the yard. I don't know when the current, significantly larger yard (extending southwestward from Winneconne Ave.) was built, but a map from 1909 shows the yard still here.

CN 5702 and CN 8865
Title:  CN 5702 and CN 8865
Description:  A CN container train traverses the west leg of the wye and approaches the Main St. overpass at the north end of the former SOO yard at Neenah, WI, on 1 Oct. '20. The locomotives are passing the remnants of the foundation from the ca. 1955 masonry SOO depot. There are rail sections supported by concrete blocks and railroad ties stacked upon it. It was built to replace the wooden depot built in 1891 on Sherry St., about 850 ft. to the southeast, which was torn down soon after the new one opened. On the far side of the train lies Arrowhead Park, a closed paper sludge landfill. Before the landfill was opened in the '50s, the south shore of Little Lake Butte des Morts came right up to the north leg of the wye. Clearwater Paper Corp., historically Kimberly-Clark’s Lakeview mill, 249 N. Lake St., Neenah, WI (physically located in Fox Crossing, WI (formerly Town of Menasha, WI, from 1855 until 14 Apr. 2016)), an active rail customer, is partially visible in the background to the right. The new, concrete railroad ties which were recently laid out next to the main line have even more recently been picked up and re-stacked.

IC 3106
Title:  IC 3106
Description:  A CN local parallels Lush St. and crosses Kaukauna St. as it heads northeast via the former joint MILW/SOO rails at Menasha, WI, on 2 Oct. '20. The locomotive will momentarily foul Kaukauna St. while a crew member opens the railroad swing bridge over the Fox River Navigation Canal to permit marine traffic. This grade crossing used to include Lush St. and Chute St., but those streets have been reconfigured. The defunct Menasha Municipal Utility plant, purchased by Simply Incredible Foods in Jun. '14, dominates the horizon to the left. The former Noffke Lumber facility is partially visible to the right. It still has a spur, but the turnout for it was removed years ago.

IC SW1R 13
Title:  IC SW1R 13
Description:  Illinois Central SW1R 13 was parked at MAYS YARD, just west of New Orleans. The locomotive had been built in June 1946 as IC 9027, and was renumbered 612 in October 1953. The railroad extensively rebuilt the locomotive in October 1968, replacing its 6-cylinder 600-horsepower prime mover with an 8-cylinder 1,000-horsepower one, and renumbered it 13. Its new hood extended all the way to its front steps, but it still had the space between its battery box and its rear steps. The 13 was to be the prototype for the rebuilding of the IC's entire fleet of SW1's, which would have been renumbered 1-17; but it was the only one done. Despite its unique status it remained on the railroad for 20 years. It spent its later life in New Orleans, and was retired in 1988
