Here are some pics from yesterday, taken up at Chester. It was an ALL UP day while I was there (about an hour and half), but still a good day anyways.

Hate to think how high the water was to those tracks back in '93... i'm sure you've heard of the Flood of 1993 before.

Some pics from my last time at Gorham. Besides UP, saw a BNSF train and a NS train with a SD60 running long hood forward!

I had the fortune to see one of the Olympic units up in Seattle on one of my student conductor trips, rolled right by me in front of the crew room. I wish I'd had a camera.

Looks like those former MoPac SD40-2's are still earning their keep. Back in the day (late 70's early 80's) they probably shuttled trains back and forth over on the Chester Sub here. :wink:

I did like seeing those S. IL shots. I decided to move north and west of there for these shots.
