Remarks & Notes 
A Chicago bound WC freight out of Shops Yard, North Fond du Lac, WI heads along Marsh siding where it will pause for a meet with a northbound intermodal train. Marsh siding was a popular meeting place on the increasingly busy WC between Fond du Lac and Waukesha. Today this is part of CN's busy mainline between Duluth and Chicago. WC 3012 is former Western Pacific 3529, built in August 1971. The GP40s were a pleasant diversion from the dominant SD45 fleet. (Not complaining about SD45s though.)

The front of the train is dark. This is just what makes the picture so good.

Railroading in the 40s, 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, basically anything but the 2000s.
