    I have to weigh in on this one. SP9721 was one of the first two GP60's on our rock trains in Kenosha, Wi. after UP took over CNW. It was paired up with UP2022. I'm glad to see that 9721 still looks good, and still escaped the re-numbering. It was also the FIRST SP unit assigned to Kenosha...

    You know, I may have to check my Joliet video. I may have been there on the same day as you. This train looks awefully familliar. It was the only time I had been to Joliet, and saw two DRGW GP40's on the EJ&E run. I have to see if the two DRGW's on my video are the same numbers!!!! If so, I...

    No, They are not WC units, and CSL was around BEFORE WC was, CSL should sue WC for copying their scheme!!!! WC was still SOO when I first saw CSL.

    Blue Island is my "home away from home"!!!! I ALWAYS see something interesting there. Too bad that CSX was replacing the wrong color doors on this unit!!!! Nice shot, I miss pre-CSX colors!!!!

    I caught this caboose on a short transfer train in Franklin Park just before it was given to IRM. I was all to happy to catch this on film, because I lived by the Milw all my life, and the day I caught it, was the FIRST time I've seen a Milw wide-vision caboose!!! They only had 2. It was only...

    Nice!! I shot a caboose like this one as it was entering Bensenville Yard on a CSX transfer job. Most of the Chessie cabooses I've seen were either wide-vision, or bay window. I've only seen this "eastern style" twice, got pics once!!!
