Album Info:Most of the photographs in this album were captured in Northeast Wisconsin in the winter of 2018, so they are mostly CN operating on former C&NW, GB&W, MILW, and SOO rails. Once in a while I try to catch ELS and WSOR on former MILW rails too.

CN 9433 and GTW 5836
Title:  CN 9433 and GTW 5836
Description:  CN local parallels N. Lake St. and passes the ongoing reconstruction of the Hwy. 41/Hwy. 10/Hwy. 441 (a.k.a. Tri-County Expressway) interchange (a.k.a. the Polish Connection) as it heads northeast via former C&NW rails at Stroebe, WI on 23 Dec. '17. Stroebe is a railroad station in Fox Crossing, WI (formerly Town of Menasha, WI until 14 Apr. '16). The interchange opened to traffic on 30 Nov. '75. When Hwy. 10 was reconstructed and relocated ca. '97, this interchange was not simultaneously reconstructed to form a full interchange, but the ongoing, extensive expansion and reconstruction will make it a full interchange as well as increase traffic capacity. Train was headed for Appleton, Little Chute, and Kaukauna.

Title:  NS 9304 and CN 2511
Description:  A CN through freight slowly crosses N. Lake St. as it heads northwest via former SOO rails at Neenah, WI on 4 Jan. '18. I thought that they had closed the grade crossing to repair it because it is starting to get a little rough, but it turns out they needed to replace a section of rail on the main line. Now the grade crossing is just a little rougher. Eggers Industries, 164 N. Lake St., Neenah, WI, a rail customer, is partially visible at right. Founded at Neenah, WI, in 1910 as Hardwood Products Co., construction of the facility commenced in Oct. ’10. It was renamed Hardwood Products Corp. as a result of a merger with Mississippi Veneer & Lumber Co. on 20 Apr. ’22 (the latter company was formed by the same businessmen who founded the Neenah company). Eggers Industries acquired Hardwood Products Corp. in 1965 and renamed it Eggers Hardwood Products Corp. Eggers was founded by Fred W. Eggers at Two Rivers, WI in 1884 to make wood baskets used by farmers. They later started making plywood and other wood veneer products. There used to be 3 spurs to service the facility, now there is only 1.

BNSF 4087 and CN 5775
Title:  BNSF 4087 and CN 5775
Description:  A large CN through freight has taken the east leg of the wye and fouls Millview Dr. while setting out and picking up cars at the north end of the former SOO yard at Neenah, WI on 5 Jan. '18. This train usually takes the west leg of the wye and fouls N. Lake St. while doing its work, but MoW crews were replacing a section of rail at that grade crossing at the time. The Fox Valley Energy Center (formerly Minergy Fox Valley Glass Aggregate Plant) loomed beyond the train, until demolition was completed in the spring of '16. Opened in Jan. '98, it stood idle since 15 Jun. '13.

CN 2230
Title:  CN 2230
Description:  A CN container train heads northwest via former SOO rails at Fremont Station, WI on 6 Jan. '18. The station sign says Fremont, but this site is 2 miles northeast of Fremont's village limits. This location is historically known as Fremont Station, but it is labeled Fremont Sidings on some old maps. The siding on the north side of the main line still sees some use, but the siding on this side (south side) of the main line that used to serve this and at least two other facilities has not been used for a long time. The rails are still there, obscured by dirt and vegetation, but the turnouts are gone. Train had two locomotives, CN 2230 pulling and another locomotive pushing.
