Remarks & Notes 
On a typically gloomy spring day in Wisconsin on March 30, 1985, Glenn Monhart’s Charleston & Western Carolina F7 No. 901 does some freight duties during car clean up at the end of operations for short line Wisconsin Western. The westbound train is crossing Black Earth Creek west of Cross Plains on this former Milwaukee Road line from Madison west to Prairie du Chien. On this day, it will make a trip to Mazomanie and a run up the branch to Sauk City, before heading back to Madison. C&WC No. 901 is the former Rio Grande No. 5644 that also served American Crystal Sugar Co. as their No. 64 before being sold to Monhart and operated as No. 564 on the Chicago, Madison & Northern, getting the purple and silver scheme as C&WC No. 901 to match his ACL E3 No. 501. Former TP&W caboose No. 529 trails on the 15-car train.
