Remarks & Notes 
Illinois tree tunnel
A Burlington Northern local approaches a “tree tunnel” as it slowly makes its way between Harmon and Amboy, Illinois, on June 10, 1984. BN operated this former Chicago, Burlington & Quincy branch from Sterling to Earlville, Illinois, known as the 10th Subdivision Branch Line of the Chicago Division. By this date, traffic was dwindling trackage and track was deteriorating, and soon, trains would soon not be running. The 46.8-mile long branch line would be torn up in 1985.

"Tunnel" effect trees tend to make when they sweep across the tracks.
