Headed down to Milwaukee again after work today. And who should I see again today down at the port is the UP's marsh job. However, today the units have changed sides.

The a little dash over to the CP to catch train #290 leaving the yard on "wash 4" heading South, railroad East.

Then driving by the East end of the depot showed a lunar signal on main 1. Then a drive over to the West end showed a green signal meaning I had a freight running through the depot. So I waited a little bit and #291 rolls through the depot.
yes rock 4329 the marsh job comes out of butler yard and returns in the late afternoon early evening hours. engines are kept at the year as well think by the engine house that is there
