I know 100-110 (with the exception of 105) are all MILW.Good to know. I knew some were over there, as I have seen 101, 103 and 104 on the Franklin Park railcam. The lowest one I have shot is 109, sitting at Union under those crappy lights. So with that info, I am assuming most of the F40's I am seeing on the Chicago cam are in the 111-125 group. I see a lot more of them on the cam than the Winnies, assuming that's because of the rebuild program. Last time I was in Chicago, all the BNSF trains except for 5 or 6 had Winnies.

Another question.....I know the BNSF and SWS share equipment, but I am assuming they do not share with HC? The reason I am assuming that is I found a video on youtube from Canal St, and there were three trains that were backwards and went to the thru tracks the Builder uses, I assume those were HC sets?
