Picture taken on looking SE on west side of Stevens Point Depot. I thought the picture was interesting because it shows the progress of technology. Most of the Herzog cars had a solar panel on them which I had not see before In the background you see the old old telegraph poles along with CN's modern comunication  tower in the background. Times are a changen.

This fall CN put a new bridge deck on a bridge just west of Stevens Point. Big operation to remove the old deck and put on a new precast concrete deck. Things were done fast to get the main line up and running again. Pretty impressive.

This picture taken on July 5.it is taken looking southeast at the intersection of the CN tracks and Water St. just west fo the Stevens Point Depot.

They are to splintered to repair.The two seats in the engine cab were also badly damaged. One can be repaird and the other will have to be replaced.

This picture shows some of the damage vandals did to the west door to the caboose. The screen door was also damaged and will need replacing. Because of the violent kicking of the doors it splintered the wood which makes them very hard to impossible to repair.

This summer CN continued to work on some of the railroad bridges just west of Stevens Point. they took out a bridge andreplaced it with a Box culvert and two metal culverts. Seems to me it would be hard to get the ballast to compact were the bridge use to be?

On Nov. 6th a back hoe with a claw type attachment cut up 3 tanker cars in the Rip Track area just east of the 2713 display. Usually they use cutting torches to cut up old rail cars. This is th first time I had seen this method. It was fun to watch.
