A Great Severe Weather Wisconsin Summer

The storms have been rolling into Wisconsin all summer long and have been a blast to get out in finding trains to shoot. I have been able to connect a few times with hopes of a few more yet this year. With todays temps all ready in the 50’s I may not get another chance.

The local Union Pacific job enters yard limits in Altoona, WI just as the storm front passes over the city.


The conductor works out in the rain as this Union Pacific job switches out Banbury Place which use to be the old Uniroyal in Eau Claire, WI.


A CSX led extra heads west on the Union Pacific Altoona Sub towards Saint Paul, MN. The setting sun paints the scene with an orange glow as I head for shelter in my Tahoe.


A BNSF train heads up the Mississippi River on the St. Croix Sub towards Minneapolis trying to out run another round or severe weather.
