A view of the Car Retarder Operators (CRO) board inside Tower-C at the UP's Proviso Hump Yard.
The dead line at Proviso is getting longer with the sidelining of the C&NW C40-8's. 23 units await repairs or disposition.
The venerable Alco's pull a drag to Proviso yard on the IHB passing under the BN. The smoke would belch and the sounds were awesome!
Enroute to be smashed into little little pieces, former SP 6808 has been retro-fitted with an SD70M style cab for testing.
Looking as it did when it was originally installed. The C&NW Lake Street tower has stood guard over the puzzle switches into the Ogilvie Transportation Center.
Looking more like a dead line at a museum rather than a class one railroad. The C&NW always had something for everyone.
Speeding through the yard with the diesel ramp to our right and a parked train to the left. "High-ball" to yard 9.
After a derailment wiped out the mains and a bridge, the Mark IV puts the finishing touches on the shoefly.
A friendly wave from the conductor and the job resumes switching out a switcher for Minooka.
Two hybrids wait for their next chore.
Wounded in the line of duty and headed for some TLC.
Job 19 heads to the shop to drop off a couple of traction motors.

I might be mistaking the model and if I do, I apologize, they all look alike to me. The reporting marks came up as NIWX.
By far the most attractive lines of the hood units!
