Remarks & Notes 
Southbound train of grain hoppers led by a GE Tier 4-compliant locomotive approaches the control point called Wann, which is one of the few places which still sports color position light signals. This line's heritage goes back to the GM&O, and prior to that was the B&O-controlled Chicago and Alton.

The days are numbered for these signals: their replacements, seen in the background, are installed but not yet activated.
