Remarks & Notes 
The bitter cold can play havoc on track. Here, two Wisconsin Central trackmen fix broken track bolts that were sheared off by the contracting rail in a “pull apart.” A kerosene-soaked rope is placed alongside the offending rail and lit, creating enough heat for the rail to expand closing up the joint, and allowing the holes to once again line up and new bolts installed. WC train No. 2 approaches in the distance, but will have to wait until the job is done before entering Shops Yard at North Fond du Lac on the late afternoon of December 12, 1994.
