Remarks & Notes 
The sun is rising on another day on the Mendota Sub near the small township of Meriden. These classic CB&Q signals litter this subdivision from Galesburg, IL, to Aurora, IL, on the 120 miles of the Mendota Sub. With new laws and upgrades, I don't think the Mendota Sub will have its original look much longer. Here we are looking east towards Earlville (set of reds signals) 6 miles away.
