Weston hoppers roll south on the Milwaukee Subdivision. This is a fairly new train for UP. The coal originates on UP in Wyoming; UP handles it through Chicago, Butler, and Adams; train is routed off the Wyeville Subdivision at Necedah and onto Canadian National's Valley Sub. The UP crew hands the train to CN just short of Wisconsin Rapids, with the goal of the same crew taking empty hoppers back to Adams. Those empties continue to Butler, where they're scheduled for a 1,000-mile inspection. Said inspection complete, this train left Butler a few minutes ago and is heading back toward Wyoming. About four loads and corresponding empties are expected through here in any given week.
