SD60M 2245 and SD70M 5166 lead an empty hopper train south on Union Pacific's Shoreline Subdivision near Cedar Grove, Wisconsin. This unusual power was necessitated by an unusual circumstance: the LPA81 crew put part of their three-unit GE locomotive consist on the ground at Sheboygan yesterday before pulling any of the cars at the power plant, so an LPA82 crew grabbed a couple of engines ("whatever's handy") at Butler last night and ran light to Sheboygan. That crew was able to assemble the train before expiring on hours of service. The LPA81 crew is handling the train back to Butler.
