Return trip to Rock Island.
WB afternoon train to Rock Island.
IAIS 720 and 711 leave town with the BUSW.
A grain extra comes off the IAIS Second Sub and onto the First Sub shortly after the QJ's came through. B&W mode with Orange Filter.
A worker/engineer takes part in an almost classic photo, as he oils QJ 9688 while it is stopped at Bureau Junction.
Shortly after the triple-headed steam special departed, the train from Peoria-Bureau came around the wye bound for the yard a short distance west of here.
The three steamers begin the trek back to Rock Island, putting on quite a show as they depart Bureau.
Composed next to a thingy(we're using technical terms here) used for servicing locomotives(probably) is QJ 6988.
Just getting the handle of this Nikon scanner....
