The train on the left, CN 416 former (STGB) has pulled into the runner (siding) at Neenah WI and is awaiting permission to continue North to Green Bay WI. Train CN 407 Fond du Lac WI to Wausau WI pulls up along side 416. Both trains idle next to each other for a short time before train 407, with 2 SD45's, WC 7524 & WC 7606, gets a green light to proceed. The engineer steps the pair of SD45's through many notches from idle on up as the train accelerates out of Neenah WI.
