This Space for Rent

A very shiny rsc-2

Milwaukee Road RSC-2 #596 switches the North La Crosse yard

It’s a sunny spring morning 49 years ago and 596 sits by the (now vanished) bridge that took the original CB&Q mainline through downtown La Crosse. I suspect it’s switching, but it’s possible that it just came in from Eau Claire via the BN from Winona Junction. Look how clean it is! You’d never think that in 3 years it would be retired and on it’s way to the breakers yard :-(
