UP 1474 Activates the Wig-Wags at Sheboygan, WI
Title:  UP 1474 Activates the Wig-Wags at Sheboygan, WI
Description:  UP local activates the Wig-Wag signals and crosses Saemann Ave. as it heads north via a remnant of the former C&NW main line at Sheboygan, WI on 3 Oct. '16. The local was preparing to switch several industries at the north end of town. We were chasing the train northward through heavy afternoon traffic and got far enough ahead of the train to stop here to get a shot or two. This being our first time chasing trains here, we were quite surprised to espy these classic and exceedingly rare crossing signals as we parked and started walking toward the grade crossing.

Description:  CN local passes SOO 736 as the former hauls 23 cars through Telulah Park via former C&NW rails at Appleton, WI on 11 Mar. ’14. Local was headed back to the former C&NW yard at Appleton Junction after servicing industries in Combined Locks, Kimberly, and Appleton. SOO 736 was donated to the City by John Mason Balliet. He also paid for construction of a temporary spur off the main line to get the locomotive into the park, as well as a fence erected later to deter vandals. The locomotive arrived on 14 Nov. '59. When asked why he did it, he said, "so that children would know what [a steam engine] looked like." He owned an insurance agency, but railroads were a hobby. He served as a director for Missouri Pacific, Michigan Central, Lake Erie & Eastern, and Pittsburgh & Lake Erie railroads.
