Contemporary Steam Locomotives

The morning after the previous two shots of 2719 was Sunday, and the 2719 was headed out again with another trainload of passengers. While a Wisconsin Central diesel was part of today's consist, you can tell that the 2719 is doing most of the pulling--the diesel is only in case of need. Here the 2719 crosses the Chippewa River, near Chippewa Falls, WI--the home of Leinenkugel's Brewing Co. Even on this dark, cloudy morning, the 2719 still makes an impressive sight as the bridge feels the weight of the big Pacific.
