WSOR/Milw South Bridge over Rock River in Janesville, WI

Soo Line 1003 crossing the Rock River on her way into Janesville, Wisconsin - August 13, 2017.
It's nice to see a steam locomotive being run properly so that there is not a lot of black smoke pouring out of the smokestack.

The steam locomotive is returning from a charity event near Galewood for the Shriners Hospitals for Children - Chicago. Metra helped because the engine used the Western Avenue Yard for servicing. A couple of summers ago, Metra ran excursions on a former-Milwaukee route with the steam locomotive NKP 765.

I had to study the satellite image because there are two former-Milwaukee routes through Janesville, and they both cross the rock river. But only the southern bridge is surrounded by green. Base on the the bridge abutment in the photo, I concluded that Steve took the picture from the Ice Age National Scenic Trail.
