Remarks & Notes 
Two Chicago & North Western EMD SD40-2s and two Alco C-628s try to pull a derailed coal gon back onto the rails in a snowstorm at the railroad’s Butler Yard in Wisconsin on January 4, 1986. I’m not sure if this was a train entering the yard that derailed, or if these units are just helping out in the rerailing. Those C-628s were pretty heavy on the rails, so I wouldn’t be surprised if they were part of equation. Either way, I never found out how long it took them to rerail the car(s), as it was windy and cold out and I was soon outta there!
