Don't see this often...
Title:  Don't see this often...
Description:  In stark contrast to an event on this same line earlier this week, the EMD rescues the GE. Due to some failure on the BNSF 5780 east of La Grange, BNSF 2886 was grabbed off of Cicero yard job 352 and added to the front of coal job E CNBBTM1 11. Many thanks to M.J. Ryan for the heads-up.

Tie plate
Title:  Tie plate
Description:  This tie plate is on an abandoned stretch of what was the old CB&Q connection to the C&NW at Turner, now West Chicago. This track follows the alignment of the original Aurora Branch from Hill Yard in Aurora to the end of track about 12 miles north. There is an additional mile or so that exists in bits and pieces up to a block or two short of the UP today.
