A little while ago my computer took a crap on me, but I finally have it fixed and am able to post pictures again. Last Saturday I decided to take a road trip, so I headed south of Stevens Point to see what was around Horicon, Byron Hill, and Slinger. Here are my results....

Horicon

Since this is a RS2, I decided to research it a little to find it lineage, from what I found, this is the last surviving RS2 from the Green Bay Western, it was GBW #303.


A Wisconsin Southern SD20 on a dead line.


I was just surprised to see a semiphore in 2011.:eek:


Byron Hill

A loaded CN taconite train on Byron Hill.


The long string of ore jennies.


A mixed frieght headed by a BC Rail unit and a SD60F.

Slinger

I chased the BC Rail unit down to Slinger, to get a shot of it there.

Thanks for the compliment! No, I haven't been to Duplainville yet. When I journey south again I might try to make it there. Or just set a day aside and go there and stay all day. When was that RS2 at the auto. complex?

Brad in Omaha, thanks! I know, I'd love to see it in GBW paint, or even better operational.

Gary, thanks! :D Now I just hope I can keep it up with the good shots. I shot them with out that polarizer so maybe that has been what has been screwing me up.
