Saturday morning railfanning in Lisle.
I though it was an Oakway leasing Sd60 for some reason as I was biking up to my spot. As a result, I had to drop my bike to get this picture. Was it worth it?
Express rolls thru the curve on track 2. Does anyone know where the train holding point might be? =)

A nice leader in the form of an ATSF SD75M makes an appearance on a manifest from the CN bound for Kansas City.
4982 heads east on Main 3, where this track track slpits off a little from the other 2 tracks, because of the split bridge in Lisle, which is because there used to be a middle platform here!
Amtrak #5 screams around the Lisle curve as an eastbound coal drag roars past on main 3.
A pair of Geeps today on the local, heading east across the DuPage River to drop off their hopper at Pepperidge Farm in Downers Grove.
A seemingly endless train of coal disappears into the fog in the early morning light.
The e/b Southwest Chief races across the DuPage River.
Westbound running wrong main with a trio of Pumpkins flies by, blowing my hat off. : )
201 flys around the curve at lisle while 188 stops at Belmont
