Remarks & Notes 
A Burlington Northern piggyback train, probably “Expeditor” No. 41, is about to pound the diamonds at East Dubuque, Illinois, on August 13, 1994. A pair of colorful EMD SD40-2s pull the train—BN No. 6808 in pinstripe whiteface colors and Soo Line No. 770. In a very model railroad-like scene is this unique track arrangement at the west end of shared trackage (Burlington/Illinois Central—later BN/CC) where the CC&P main line curves away from the BN’s near the East Dubuque depot, enters a curved tunnel through a bluff, pops out of the bore and immediately crosses BN’s double-track main, and onto a bridge over the Mississippi River.
