Remarks & Notes 
The Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard is one of the biggest yards around. With constant action, the yard is 5.5 miles in length and houses over 250 miles worth of trackage. It's also one of the largest hump classification facilities in the US and on this sunny morning, we see BRC SD40-2's 300 and 310 preparing to shove their final car over the hump. A slug set can be seen going about its work on the other end of the tower as well. The hump tower dispatches more than 8,400 cars a day and between 40 and 50 miles worth of consists on a daily basis. The BRC's roster consists of a whole bunch of classic EMD products and with their strikingly nice paint scheme, you can't go wrong.
