Remarks & Notes 
The last of autumn’s color is fading and falling to the ground, and there is a hint of winter in the air, as a Chicago and North Western empty ore train skirts the stillness of Goose Lake at Partridge, Michigan, on October 25, 1986. Three Alco C-628s lead the northbound train, and in only a few weeks, the entire fleet of aging six-motor Alcos will be replaced by EMD SD50 and 60s, ending another era.
