Trains in Waterloo and Butler area.

I am not sure what the problem was but there were trains stopped on both tracks.

On my way to Butler from Waterloo I saw the first eastbound train stopped right before the grain elevator. Train on #1 track. (I did get photo of this train, will post later.)

The next one was on #2 track stopped west of Butler at CR59. It was also an eastbound. Appeared to have issues with the locomotive. There was no maintainer truck. A second locomotive was stopped east of this location, on the same track, just before the 61 overpass. (Locomotive no cars.)

In Butler a short train with locomotive on the west end of the train was blocking Federal St. Train also on #2 track.

Back in Waterloo at Commerce Dr. sat another eastbound on #1 track.

Did not get phots due the lack of places to park.

I could not wait around to find out what was going on.

Anyone have info?
