Railfan Report

This morning (~9:15AM) I saw an EMD SW series (SW1200 most likely) yard switcher (in dirty UP paint) pulling two covered hoppers and an empty mill gondola southbound on the West Allis Sub toward the Mitchell Yard.  On the very end of the consist was a very old C&NW caboose in primer-gray and black colors.  It was neat to see.  I also saw some maintenance of way equipment sitting on or near the turnout for the UP-owned exempt line that crosses Mitchell st., National Ave., and Greenfield Ave., eventually leading to Avalon Rail, Siemens, and AC Equipment Services.  Hopefully they’re repairing that line and not getting ready to remove it.
