Looks like the 5995 took a punch to the cheek, note the ripple and touch ups. Empty Pleasant Praire hoppers roll westbound meeting Metra at Elmhurst.
Shoving her way back to Chicago's OTC.
Just another train. Not a single child at the water park pays attention to the 614 as she departs Frankin Park.
282's train sits in the westward siding at Wadsworth, awaiting a new crew.
The 116 leads her train out of downtown, next stop, Western Ave.
Panned westbound about to leave Illinois and punch through the "Cheddar Curtain".
Waiting for the departure from Proviso.
A 50mm shot of the A-B-A set, a bit of a different view from my previous moon shot. Exposure 90 seconds, f/9,ISO-200.
This ex-UP switcher still lives on in middle Illinois. She was last painted at NLR in July of 1991, not so bad for almost 20 years worth of weathering.
The 7881 heads up a long line in the service pit at Corwith.
What used to be the norm... The EJ&E road train crosses the CP/Metra mains to deliver cars to the CP yard, at dusk, 7:52 pm.
Stored with her stack capped and horn removed.
A current view at Silvis, the yard expansion and shop construction is hurting the view. A roster shot of the now mono-tone tunnel motor would be a nice addition.
The 261 simmers in Chicago overnight. The filming of a movie brought her into town at the time. 1.6 seconds exposure.
