What a catch! A graffiti'id s up Up C45CTE, a CEFX SD40-3, and a worn out UP SD40-2! Completely awsome!
A very very small and over powered mainfest rolls past me at Yackley Road. An Oakway SD60 is trailing. It only had 18 cars.

An autorack train lead by BNSF 6879 and FURX 8125 run past me and head toward Cicrao.
It took an hour to see my first train.

After dumping rock up to Belmont, the rock train pours on the coals as it picks up the pace westbound.
Third train of the day, and I was only their for 6 minutes!
First train of the second time railfanning of the day.
BNSF continued to provide good leaders throughout the day, this time on an unexpected rock train in the form of yet another good ol' BN SD40-2, and, of course, CB&Q signals.
A BNSF Z with 2 patched Warbonnets with Santa Fe lettering still on the engines rumble past me in Lisle.
