Since last year, the CNW twins have been in storage at the Illinois Railway Museum and spend their days around the museum grounds. Here, they slumber away on a mainly clear night.
BCOL 4608 leads M395 by Rowell Avenue in Joliet, closing in on the yard.
L521 arrives at Joliet and prepares to go about its switching at the yard. Today, a pair of NS standard cab Dash 9's provide the power, definitely not something you would expect on a CN local.
On a sunny afternoon, M395 heads west through Joliet with a solo BC Rail Barn.
A grain train rolls through Sibley with a trio of EMD's leading the train to Gibson City.
Bloomer 7591 and LTEX 3801 are closing in on the elevator in Anchor, where they will take on loads.
Bloomer's high hood takes the day off as it basks in the sun outside the engine house.
The three EMD's sound great in run 8 as they lead a grain train through the small town of Strawn.
While the EMD's do most of the work for the Bloomer Line, we must not forget the Plymouth 12 ton. The little critter brings a few cars into town for loading.
A pair of classic, chinese red Bloomer Line GP10's sandwich an LTEX Geep as they shove a bean train around the curve at Risk Junction.
An eastbound KJRY freight bounces along at 10 MPH with a pair of covered wagons doing the honors through the soy bean fields.
A Bloomer train full of soy beans heads for the elevator at Strawn on a sunny, but scorching hot day.
A CN barn leads G88891 through Monee on a humid afternoon. Many of the barns are in storage, but C40-8M 2417 continues to make money for its owner.
The morning empties are shoved into the plant, powered by a pair of the Sanitation District of Chicago's SW1's.
Some classic power waits to switch Clyde Yard on this sunny morning.
