8,786 tons of A490 were more than a match for BNSF C44-9W 5225 and CN SD75I 5668, as it stalled on Byron Hill. Shovers were called from Fond du Lac, and after a delay, the train is again on the move and about to top out at the crest of the hill. Train is operating on main track 2, unusual for southbounds, on account of a rail grinder working on main 1.
