A bit of Canadian Pacific heritage sits out on the edge of the yard.
MILW soldiers on in 2007. Perhaps they'll gather the remaining MILW-painted units for the line west of B17 someday....
the yard tracks off Franklin ave have long been a good place to spot idling yard power
Two Soo Line geeps are hooked together with 6 BNSF B23-7s.....the GEs are en route to the MMA.....
Bensenville Yard from about 6000'...and I still can't fit it all in the frame! O'Hare airport is just out of the picture to the right.
One of the last remaining SOO painted SD40-2 sits waiting for its next to call to duty at the Bensenville hump.
A very unique unit passes another very rare loco, being the SOO 774; the last SOO SD40-2 painted SOO colors left in the states, only two others remain up in Canada. (Corrections are welcome!)
Another loco I never thought I'd ever see, Delaware & Hudson 7303. This unit came in on CP 284 from Milwaukee, and departed two days later leading an unknown manifest east through Indiana.
On Christmas Eve, I get treated to a nice little surprise... one of two SOO MP15's still remaining in the SOO Red and White scheme in crisp morning sunlight...
Nice Multi-Mark GP38-2 resting at Bensenville.
A bright red CP yard goat shines in the sun just prior to lake effect clouds taking over the skies.
A lone CP Gevo rolls off the turntable and pulls down towards the West end of the yard.
Soo Geeps gather at the West end of Bensenville Yard after a long day of switching.
A Soo bandit geep still in its Milwaukee Road colors works the east end of Bensenville Yard with a SOO MP15.
