Remarks & Notes 
After pulling its cut of boxcars and woodchip hoppers ahead for headroom, GTW 4616 and train pause on the ancient ex-C&NW bridge over the Fox River to wait for the conductor to throw back the switch behind the train. The line which the train is on used to run all the way to Manitiwoc, Wisconsin, but that portion of the line was ripped up sometime in the 1990s. Once the conductor has made the switch, they will shove back into the runaround track, make their cut of empties, and after grabbing thier loads, run up to the Fox River Subdivison, and back to Neenah.

A far cry from the common wedgie ... and particularly well executed.
