Light power passing the old West Chicago station, runs at restricted speed (15 MPH) toward Global III (Rochelle, IL)
A very very small and over powered mainfest rolls past me at Yackley Road. An Oakway SD60 is trailing. It only had 18 cars.
AMTK 128 speeds to LaGrange.
An autorack train lead by BNSF 6879 and FURX 8125 run past me and head toward Cicrao.
It took an hour to see my first train.
An ex. ATSF SD40-2 leads FURX 8125 and an autorack train down from Eola to Cicero.
A coal train runs through the construction site at West Chicago.
This was nice. The other railfans were not happy to see the heritage unite trailing, but I liked seeing an oldie leading! Notice the conductor is holding a sign. The sign says, "Go Away!"
