CN 4705, IC 3137 and GTW 6228         
CN local, a rare three unit train, backs across W. 2nd St. as it drops off a healthy string of cars at the former C&NW yard at Appleton Junction, WI on 23 Jun. '15. Train had three locomotives, CN 4705, IC 3137 and GTW 6228. Local would then continue on to work Little Chute and Kaukauna, but they left GTW 6228 at the yard. Carter's Caboose is a small, rail side tavern just out of frame to the right.

T. P. Bruss General Thank you both. My autofocus did not perform to its utmost ability, but I posted the photograph anyway due to the uniqueness of the motive power lash up. 8/5/2015 3:44:54 AM
