Remarks & Notes 
Despite running across the heart of Illinois, the Santa Fe TransCon, now known as BNSF's Chillicothe Subdivision, is anything but flat. Trains traversing this line must climb and descend many steep grades and the hard working locomotives are often heard long before they are seen. One of the more popular locations on the line is here at the Santa Fe signal bridges in Edelstein. In this scene, a beautiful sunset casts a warm glow on the locomotives leading a lengthy eastbound intermodal train up Edelstein Hill while the end of the train descends the adjacent hill. Up until this past summer, many classic Santa Fe signals like these guided trains along this line, but BNSF crews have removed many of these classic structures, making this control point one of the last untouched locations on this famous route.

A continuously growing album of photos that IMHO reveal the awesome and seldom-seen beauty of the railroad world from the dimming of day to dawn's early light! From dusk to dawn, trains roll on! (I'm still finding gems of sunset-to-sunrise surprises!)

Tier IV locomotives are the safest, cleanest, and most fuel efficient locomotives on the rails today. Unfortunately, most of them are ugly and are as quiet as an ACS-64.
