One of 7 WC GP40s not stored, 3018, pushes on the rear of 416 at Stevens Point. This train runs push-pull with manned units on the front and rear of the train, kinda neat.
Repainted WC SW1500 1570 switches the yard at Stevens Point.
EJ&E SD38-2 665 switches the yard at Plover. Quite weird to see a EJ&E up here, but I'll take it!
DM&IR SD40-3 417 and all sorts of CN family units of different heritages sit in the deadline at Homewood.
CP SD40-2 5929 sits at Bryn Mawr with a eastbound ethanol train as a plane flies overhead, about to land at O Hare.
CN RDC 1501 heads west into Joliet Yard past the graveyard.

DM&E 6080 leads a nice six SD40-2 consist through Kingston on a westbound ethanol train.

BNSF H3 Dash 9 1065 leads a intermodal west through Downers Grove.
IC&E SD40-2 6430 leads 271 west at Davis Junction. Nothing like seeing two SD40-2s bounding down jointed rail on a class one railway (CP) in 2009.
GN&A 26 sits on display at IRM outside the steam shop, hopefully waiting for the day it can be restored at least cosmetically.
