Two views almost 24 years apart.
Both feature southward trains on the former Soo Line, Wisconsin Central route ascending Byron Hill on their way south from Fond du Lac, exposed in the morning from the overhead bridge near the top of the grade.
In the interval between the images, the line was improved to two-main track and Wisconsin Central Limited became part of the Canadian National system.
The locomotives are very different too.

This illustrates one of the things I really like about railroad photography, namely that you cannot take the same picture twice. It doesn’t matter if you come back a day later or ten years later, the results will be different.
Fascinating to see two-tracking in recent years.
