The 452 job follows behind a Z train & Metra on its return trip from the city. Today the local sports a rebuilt SD40, sadly also sporting “eyebrows”.
BNSF 2676 leads 452 west through Brookfield.
A pair of H4 geeps lead R-CHI452 through Naperville.

A veteran bluebonnet geep heads home for Eola with the 452 local.
BNSF GP38-2 2240 leads the R-CHI452 back west light, passing Western Springs.
A late running Pepperidge Farm local heads back east towards Eola yard. Everything was running later than usual due to a inbound Metra striking and killing a pedestrian at Forest Avenue.
A local from Rochelle to Eola slams east through Lee. To make a long story short, the crew of this train was less than thrilled to see us.
2 westbounds illustrate the term "Racetrack" at Naperville! In the foreground is CHI452 on Main 3 while the EOSSCM light power is on Main 1. Both movements are bound for Eola Yard.
