Remarks & Notes 
Way Back Machine: In another scene that can't be repeated, in the summer of 2006, RRC 14 runs around steel coil cars on what is left of the Wabash UD line. The only remaining customers at this point were the steel facility and the elevator in the background. Instead of running on Metrolink tracks at night (as was originally planned in 1992), a third "main" was kept for "heavy rail" served industries, and crossed light rail at a diamond at Grand Ave. All these industries are now gone, and the tracks have been removed.
