Union Pacific local crew LPA82 handles a loaded coal train northward toward Sheboygan on a bright morning. There are two Butler/Sheboygan local coal train crews; one can be called between 0800 and 1959 and the other at any time between 2000 and 0759. Either crew can haul loads from Butler to Sheboygan, and then spot the loads at the Edgewater power plant, or pull empties and return them to Butler, as necessary. The engineer of '82 gives us a hearty wave as the train proceeds north at the breakneck speed of 10 MPH.
