When I landed at O’Hare today to spend a few days on a work assignment in Chicago, I checked my phone and saw that UP 4141 was on display at Proviso. I arrived to find it paired with the veterans unit. The UP had flood lights around the pair, so I returned for a nocturnal view.
An ongoing/growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome, but seldom seen beauty of railroads because most of us don't go out after sundown or before sunrise. From dusk to dawn, lights are on! (And I continue to find new "Lights In The Night"!)
The EMD SD (special duty) series are a strong and reliable kind of locomotive which still serve America's rails today. They have proved themselves by clocking in several million miles of freight service.
