This was certainly a treat! CN 8006 and EMDX 9043 fly through Tree Brow with the "Q" Portland to Chicago."
This was a suprise! I wasn't expecting a coal train to pass through let alone have a CEFX SD9043MAC (My first CEFX SD90) second out!
Eastbound Metra train 1320 departs Lisle on it's trip to Chicago with an F40 pushing on the rear.
Another in the parade of dinkies rounds the bend coming into Lisle.
The NSINTW speeds east down the BNSF.
A very late Pasco train passes the signal box for the wayside signal shown on the left
I knew a coal train was coming, but it wasn't until the last second that I saw it rounding the corner, I was still biking as I took this shot.
The Metra races out of the storms.
From far away this looked like an NS SD70M-2, as it came closer I found out that it was even rarer!!! A UP SD70ACe leading an intermodel down for the BRC. How rare is that!?...
A mostly NS consist heads toward Clyde yard on this perfect evening.
A sweet light power moves ends the day for me.
Fairview Grain Local headed by EMDX 748 hauls, speed, as it screams past me on Main 3.
What a catch! A graffiti'id s up Up C45CTE, a CEFX SD40-3, and a worn out UP SD40-2! Completely awesome!
