Badger State Travels Part 2

During my travels to the Badger State I had the opportunity to railfan a little from Madison up to LaCrosse. Didn't catch to many trains but got a few right of way photos.

Wyeville, WI

For all you modelers looking for the example of the mainline going through a diverging point turnout here it is. We are facing west on the UP Altoona Sub. Just beyond the bridge is the main to St. Paul diverging to the right and a branch line continuing straight to Tunnel City, WI where it connects into the CP Tomah Sub.

View east to Adams / Milwaukee.

Camp Douglas , WI

View east from crossing on CP's Tomah Sub (Portage to La Crosse).

Few minutes later caught the eastbound Empire Builder hauling through.

Lastly a CP manifest was in the hole at Camp Douglas waiting for AMTK, not soon after making the meet this manifest with 2 CP AC4400s was heading west.

First real experience railfanning while traveling and hope to improve the photos in the future, but the overall Wisconsin feel should still be there.

Back to St. Clair Sub Posts next week
