Remarks & Notes 
A quick sucker hole in the building cloud cover allows the sun to shine through and illuminate westbound local freight L-CHI1021 16I as it works its way through the quaint community of Edelstein and beneath the Santa Fe style searchlight signal bridges that still lay their claim here. Two widecab, four-axle General Electric Dash 8 locomotives dressed in heritage II paint lead the Galesburg Yard bound freight from Chicago, the norm for these trains. Edelstein is the highest point on BNSF's entire Chillicothe Subdivision, reaching 814 ft above sea level and marking the end of a 6 mile, 1.1% climb up and out of the Illinois River Valley for westbound trains, like this one.
