Thread: Wisconsin-Southern

  1. #1

    Default Wisconsin-Southern

    I paid a visit to my father-in-law over the weekend for his 70th birthday party. I noticed that the Wisconsin-Southern has upgraded their mainline from Madison southward with new CWR(Continuous Welded Rail).

    Has speed increased or will it be increased since the new tracks have been installed?

    There's a WSOR discussion group on Yahooo Groups, I think. You'd probably get a quick answer there.

    Watco bought the WSOR back in January. Not much has changed although some of the motive power is being moved around. I caught this former WSOR GP38 passing thru Downers Grove IL on the BNSF last Tuesday in transit to the Yellowstone Valley Railroad in Montana.
