UP 4951 and SP 8681 (currently running laps between Proviso and GIII) come to a stop just past the bridge in La Fox, IL.
EJ&E 312 and T-2 switch cars around the EJ&E yard. Note to the right, a very rare test car, EJ&E #003!
The NSINTW speeds east down the BNSF.
A very late Pasco train passes the signal box for the wayside signal shown on the left
I knew a coal train was coming, but it wasn't until the last second that I saw it rounding the corner, I was still biking as I took this shot.
The Metra races out of the storms.
From far away this looked like an NS SD70M-2, as it came closer I found out that it was even rarer!!! A UP SD70ACe leading an intermodel down for the BRC. How rare is that!?...
A mostly NS consist heads toward Clyde yard on this perfect evening.
I'd say breathing in that crap from the GP60 probably took at least 10 years off of my life.
This was a nice surprise. I knew 7695 was in the area, but I didn't expect to see it, let alone leading.
A sweet light power moves ends the day for me.
Railroad Daze gets a little less attention as the ICE moves eastward.
An outbound Metra runs express to Glen Ellyn blaring through the town of Lombard
