    EJ&E SW1200 303, nicknamed the "Top Banana" by EJ&E crews, switches Joliet Yard.

    EJ&E 301

    EJ&E SW1200 301 in the yellow paint and SD38-2 670 sit at Joliet Yard. Kind of a odd coupling.

  5. CN 4700

    CN 4700

    CNs first GP38-2 is in good company: trailing a GP40-2LW (currently oldest on CNs roster) followed by a GP9RM predecessor. As you can see with each generation the cab gets bigger LOL. Sadly the GP40-2LWs were the last new Geeps on CNs roster. From MP 25.00 York sub June 29th, 2008 6:01pm...
  6. Twin Sisters

    Twin Sisters

    A matched pair of americanized GEVOs head up the 301 today with 34 railcars cut on the head. Present here are both 2303 and 2304.
  7. VIRX 7059

    VIRX 7059

    This unit started its life as a GP9 in 1955, originally CN 2021, re-numbered 4472 in 1956, then re-build to GP9RM in 1992, becoming CN 7059. This year after 57 years on CN he was retired and sold to VIRX. Unless he's going to a shortline, chances are that this is the last time he's seeing CN...
  8. Radio towers?

    Radio towers?

    I've seen these loads on CN before, ussually travelling in a CN gondola.

    DM&IR SD-M 301

    DM&IR SD-M 301, one of 5 remaining SD-Ms in service, sits at Homewood waiting for its next assignment. Quite nice to see this DM&IR with its paint in almost perfect condition in Illinois.
