Album Info:Most of the photographs in this album were captured in Northeast Wisconsin in the fall 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 2035, et al.
Title:  CN 2035, et al.
Description:  A CN through freight approaches Hwy. M as it heads southeast via former SOO rails at Medina Station, Town of Dale, Outagamie Co., WI on 8 Oct. '18. Train had two locomotives, CN 2035 and GECX 7366. The WC built a depot here somewhere between 1871, when the line was laid, and 1889, when I recently found it depicted on a map. The site was labeled as Medina Station on maps until at least 1915. The depot stood approximately where the CN microwave tower now stands, just out-of-frame to the right.

GTW 5857
Title:  GTW 5857
Description:  A CN local crosses the bridge over W. State St./Hwy. 54 and approaches the junction with the former GB&W right-of-way as it heads south with four boxcars via former SOO rails at Black Creek, WI on 16 Oct. '18. The former GB&W right-of-way is now the Newton Blackmour State Trail. Train was headed back to Neenah from Shawano. It did not seem as though they were slowing down to service the CHS Larsen Cooperative, but when I photographed them later at Mackville Station, they had added a pair of tank cars to their consist.

The former GB&W right-of-way is now the Newton Blackmour State Trail. The old signal relay case still has GB&W, as well as WCL, stenciled on its door. Train was headed back to Neenah from Shawano. It did not seem as though they were slowing down to service the CHS Larsen Cooperative, but when I photographed them later at Mackville Station, they had added a pair of tank cars to their consist.

GTW 5857
Title:  GTW 5857
Description:  A CN local rounds a curve and approaches Hwy. O as it heads southeast with six cars via former SOO rails at Mackville Station, Town of Center, Outagamie Co., WI on 16 Oct. ‘18. Listed as Mackville Station on some old maps, distinguishing it from the community of Mackville which is 1-mile due east of here, it is listed as Mackville on some time tables. The station sign, which read Mackville, was stolen between 13 Jun. and 9 Jul. ’14, not long after I posted a photograph of it on this site. I presume it was stolen; I would think if the railroad had removed the sign they would have removed the posts as well. Both posts stood barren for quite a while. One of the posts still stands next to the track, the other lies on the ground. Some remnants of the depot’s foundation are hidden in the overgrowth. Part of the passing siding can be seen at right, it has been truncated at Hwy. O. What remains forms a spur which could be used to service the idle facility partially visible to the right (most recently Southwest Stainless & Alloy, previously Stainless Tubular Products). The cool, old barn in the background has a loading dock extending to the spur.
