Remarks & Notes 
A dream come true. I have always wanted to shoot the C&NW Twins passing C&NW signals. Well on the morning of my birthday, I said enough was enough and made a dream a reality. C&NW 8646 leads the westbound IG2G2 past the still standing C&NW searchlights in Cortland, IL as they head towards Global 3 in Rochelle, IL.
