Remarks & Notes 
An eclectic deuce of locomotives hustle a 96-car Tulsa, OK to Galesburg, IL high-priority mixed merchandise train H TULGAL9 10A across the immense Ellison Creek trestle near the small community of Media, IL. Built back in 1910, this 742 foot long bridge carries the double-tracked BNSF Chillicothe Subdivision over a small stream of water known as Ellison Creek as well as seldom used County Rd 1000N. Construction has already begun to replace the aging structure with a brand new concrete span by the end of 2017. As the crow flies, Media is located halfway between Ft. Madison, IA and Galesburg at exactly 27 miles in both directions.

The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
