With a friendly wave The Rock Train approaches Hansche Road on the Kenosha Sub after picking up their loaded hoppers from the Vulcan Quarry at Ives heading all the way down to Upton.
I think this was the MIC's truck.
Rough neighborhood, muddy water, common engines...but look at the bridge!
A couple months back...just when the fall colors were starting to fade.
The afternoon sun does a wonderful job of blinding westbound crews on this line.
The rock train's power sits idle awaiting the days crew.
The rock train is about to end its day, the Cotton Belt GP60 is a regular fixture on the rock job.
