UP's Cudahy job, the LPA54, tied up here at Capitol Avenue, at the south end of Butler Yard. As of early 2008, this Monday-Friday job originates and terminates here at Butler, following the closure of Mitchell Yard on Milwaukee's south side. Butler was a busy place this afternoon, what with an MPRBU yarding their train on the north end, an MBUPR trying to depart, a radio control job switching cars, and at least one other yard job active. That congestion led to this Cudahy job tying up here, the Marsh job tied up behind them... and still to come home were the Waukesha and Granville jobs.

LLPX GP38-2 2291, a frequent sight on the UP in the Milwaukee area, started life as Penn Central 8023.
