IC 3138 and GTW 6226
Title:  IC 3138 and GTW 6226
Description:  A CN local traverses the west leg of the wye at the north end of the former SOO yard at Neenah, WI on 15 Jun. '19. The local, preparing to head for Appleton, Little Chute, and Kaukauna, is approaching the remnants of the foundation from the ca. 1955 masonry SOO depot. The rail sections supported by concrete blocks and railroad ties rest atop the remnants of the foundation. The masonry depot 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. In the background, GTW 6226 prepares to transition from the east leg of the wye to the north leg of the wye. The white building partially visible between the locomotives is, or was, Progressive Paper Storage, Inc. (formerly Kimberly-Clark Warehouse (K-C Warehouse)), 135 Millview Dr. It does not receive rail service, but it looks like there may have been a spur on the northwest side of the building in the past. The Fox Valley Energy Center (formerly Minergy Fox Valley Glass Aggregate Plant) stood to the left, at what is now Arrowhead Park, until demolition was completed in the spring of '16. Opened in Jan. '98, it stood idle since 15 Jun. '13. The P. H. Glatfelter Co. paper mill dominated the skyline in the background for 135 years, the oldest part of the original mill was constructed in 1874. Glatfelter purchased the mill from Bergstrom Paper Co. in 1979. Bergstrom had purchased the mill, originally Winnebago Paper, in 1904. Glatfelter moved the jobs to Ohio in June 2006, the mill stood idle for about two years until it was torn down, demolition was completed in May 2009. The corporate headquarters of Plexus, 1 Plexus Way, (out of frame to left), and an Ascension clinic (formerly Affinity clinic) at 101 Main St. occupy most of the site of the old paper mill. Neenah's newest, modern eyesore, the Gateway office building (also obviously used by Plexus), looms in the background. After razing some more cool, old buildings, construction commenced on 4 May '16 and was completed about a year later. There is no room for historic buildings and classic architecture in Future Neenah.

IC 3138
Title:  IC 3138
Description:  A CN local traverses the west leg of the wye at the north end of the former SOO yard at Neenah, WI on 15 Jun. '19. The local was preparing to head for Appleton, Little Chute, and Kaukauna. Beyond 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.

GTW 6226
Title:  GTW 6226
Description:  As the tail end of a CN local traverses the west leg of the wye, GTW 6226 waits on the north leg of the wye at the north end of the former SOO yard at Neenah, WI on 15 Jun. '19. The local has just passed the remnants of the foundation from the ca. 1955 masonry SOO depot. The rail sections supported by concrete blocks and railroad ties rest atop the remnants of the foundation. The masonry depot 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. Beyond 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. The Fox Valley Energy Center (formerly Minergy Fox Valley Glass Aggregate Plant) once dominated the scene beyond the trains, until demolition was completed in the spring of '16. Opened in Jan. '98, it stood idle since 15 Jun. '13. The P. H. Glatfelter Co. paper mill dominated the skyline in the background at right for 135 years, the oldest part of the original mill was constructed in 1874. Glatfelter purchased the mill from Bergstrom Paper Co. in 1979. Bergstrom had purchased the mill, originally Winnebago Paper, in 1904. Glatfelter moved the jobs to Ohio in June 2006, the mill stood idle for about two years until it was torn down, demolition was completed in May 2009. The corporate headquarters of Plexus, 1 Plexus Way, the ugly, black blob, occupies part of the site of the old paper mill.

Yard Office/Station
Title:  Yard Office/Station
Description:  Powers is located along the former Chicago and Northwestern line between Menominee,MI and Escanaba, MI. It is the location of a junction that the C&NW used to branch off a line that at one time went on to Ashland WI. This branch now ends at Iron Mountain, but does not appear to get much use past Quinnesec. At Quinnesec, the CN services a large Verso facility.An interesting detail on this building is the silhouette of the old C&NW ball and bar sign on the upper right hand corner of the gable end.

"Union" station
Title:  "Union" station
Description:  This station was at the crossing of the Cotton Belt and Rock Island, so effectively a union station. Were looking along the Cotton Belts side of the station. The Cotton Belt used the Rocks Choctaw Route from Memphis to reach this spot, then connected with its own St Louis-Texarkana line. The Rock continued on to Little Rock and Amarillo, eventually reaching a connection with SP proper at Tucumcari.

Home town heritage
Title:  Home town heritage
Description:  Many places make some effort to show their railroad history, whether it be a steam engine in a park, a restored station, or just some equipment on a siding. Needles had a siding full of equipment, but I was on a "geezer" tour, and didnt have time during this meal break to go check out the whole display. I was able to get this shot of a nicely painted ATSF box from the McDonalds parking lot. Oh well....
