We live in a Literal World.


Portage Redux - The Rails
Canadian Pacific Rail Yard
Portage, Wisconsin

After spending a few hours on the road getting to the yard, I was surprised that almost all the rail cars, mostly tankers and hoppers were freshly painted. That meant this shoot would be remarkably different that the last time I shot here in 2003 (see below). Even so, it was a beautiful day and I managed to get a few good shots.

I photographed the trains at CP Rail Yard in 2003. It's quite a different perspective, and if you haven't taken a look at them yet, visit
CP Rail Yard. Additional, alternate views of rail cars and more are located in the "Literal World" area of this site.
