Canadian Pacific's former Soo Line across Wisconsin is quite an exceptional piece of railroad. During a week-long endeavor to explore the state, I set out along the Tomah Sub, a 103 mile long section of the main between Portage, WI and La Crosse. While the trains were interesting, the weather was downright awful. Snow, rain, wind and cold temperatures were the main players. However, the trains kept running. I was surprised at the extreme lack of CP power, as many foreign road units will be seen from NS, BNSF and CSX. Enjoy, subscribe and thanks for watching!!

Alongside BNSF Main 3 in Cajon Pass, CA sits a small memorial. It's dedicated to two railroaders, Gil Ortiz and Kevin Williams, who died when their train ran away down the hill in 1996. Recently, another cross has been added for Rudy Borrego who passed away in a traffic accident on Cajon Pass recently. He was a BNSF locomotive engineer and Local Chairman for the BLET in Los Angeles. This clip features an eastbound BNSF Z train climbing up Main 3 past the memorial. Main 3 at this location (between Summit and Cajon) is the steepest Class 1 RR mainline grade in America.
