Vulcan Gravel Train

Union Pacific runs a train for Vulcan Materials on the Kenosha Sub (former C&NW Old Line) from Vulcan's quarry at Ives (Caledonia), Wisconsin to their reload facility on the Kenosha Industrial Lead (former Farm Sub), north of Bain Station Road and west of WIS-31 in Pleasant Prairie.  The train typically runs with a pair of UP four-axle EMDs; GP15-1s used to be common, and GP60s have run the train the past few years, but GP38-2s and GP39-2s have shown up on the train as well.  Most of the cars are the red-to-pink Vulcan VULX hoppers, although leased black cars from ITGX are also used.
