i got to watertown early around maybe 6:15 am, only to see a high green

Train 1 299 WB manifest these 2 GE's work hard to get this long freight moving,

Know he took main 1 and my thoughts were there's an eb coming, so i decided to go abck and check the EB signals, And to my surprise 182 with 2 SOO sad60's was coming, so i drove through town hoping to catch them, but no dice.

then i got the rock train which has a video of it's own, that took up most of this day,

then my friend sean aka gumball469 texted me and said the MT Rushmore DME unit was leading 276, know normally 276 is through watertown before sunup, but today he was late, i also got a text from another friend saying LPA53 The Butler toa dams local was leaving butler, i decided to head to Resseville tog et 276, 5 minutes after getting to Reeseville, the gates come downa nd 276 rlls by with a Sweet Lashup, and a friendly conductor, then it's off to clyman

while at clyman i see 53, stop on the siding, thats odd, then he chimes in for a new warrant, dispatcher advised them that they would be meeting an EB, which turned out to be MSSPR, didnt shoot, him but he ahd 6-7 locomoitvies 1 of which was a patched RIO Grande unit UP 1901, anyways after MSSPR clears 53 starts moving, with 2 gp38-2's and a gp15 being sandwhiched by the other 2 units, he set out the first 6 cars for thr JeffersonJob on Monday

after they clear i headed back to the waterloo pit to see if the rock train was their, much to my surprise he was gone, and again thats in another video.

i met up with 2 friends of mine whow ere catching the rock train in town, and they went to oconomowoc, i followed and we got the INRDS their on train 801, after wards i started heading back to watertown, and decided to stop at a gas station in Ixonia tog et some sodas, and iw ent to a crossing only tos ee 282 coming slowly, i parked my car got out, but the gates were coming down, only got a few pics, he ahd a gevo and SOO sd60, plus 5 ex via rail coaches

anyways back at watertown another railfan was their and he told me that the INRDS are coming soon, they held at cooney for 282 to pass, btw the INRD Videos are a video of their own as well,

after he passes 281 comes through with a Gevo and CEFX AC4400CW know they were gonna die on hours, the crew that takes 182 down to chicago breaks 281 back, they died on main 1 in watertown at welsh road, after he goes 7 comes through a little alte, he also took main 1 thats odd, he takes main 2 because it's closest to the depot in columbus, after a while i head out to welsh road and see that both 281 and 7 are gone, appearantley they ran an 800 series coke train on main 2 the whole way, and moved 7 over from main 1 to main 2 at Tamarack,

after awhile we get to see 277, i havent seen this train in a couple years, sure was nice seeing it again especially sine the leader DME 6360 was an Ex Milwaukee road unit, here the DME and an ICE unit sandwhich SOO 6061 an sd60M
