This corridor on the south side of Sheboygan sees a lot of energy. Coal trains from Wyoming's Southern Powder River Basin wrap up their journey coming down the Edgewater lead. The power plant burns this fuel to make electricity, which heads back out this corridor by way of high-voltage overhead wires. In this photo we see the crew of the empty train heading back to the power plant for the second half of their train.
