The Waukegan local scoots past the Jockey International plant and will soon be crossing the site of the former North Shore diamond. The usual crew of this train are always a real nice bunch of guy... (more)
Thomas Johnson caught this train earlier this day- check out his shot at http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=114625
Haven't seen a matched pair of red/white SOO SD60s in a while- sure beats the CP AC44 trailing! (and any CP/SOO fan knows what I'm talking about)
The first of three UP southbounders cruises past Supervalu's warehouse on freshly ground rails.
The Waukegan Local follows the "Saran Wrap" train onto the main.
A VERY nice consist on CP 287- that's right, two bandits and a 700-series SD40-2!
The second of 4 unpainted UP SD70ACes heads north. Destination- WSOR's Horicon paint shop. This unit has now been painted into Western Pacific Heritage colors.
Southbounder proceeds at restricted speed
4 different schemes are represented on this train- CP Rail (minus the pac-man), Golden Beaver, a Milwaukee Road Bandit, and SOO White/Red.
The power for the daily MPRIT heads away from its train to pick up a coal unit (UP 6511) from the wye and bring it to Butler.
Northbound MPRIT picked up a coal unit for Butler Yard- here the conductor watches the moment back to the train which they had parked before the crossing.
Nice, dirty CP SD40-2, eh? Seems like Mr. Schreiner and Mr. Matuska catch the same trains as I do.
