UP 7650 hits the diamond as it crosses the former WP main line into Niles Canyon. At one time, this was a junction between the SP and Western Pacific. SP's line split in two just past the diamond and both lines rejoined in San Jose. WP's line headed east to Stockton. Today, everything is owned...
CP 457 is taking over the diamond while CN 314 waits for a crew. This is the JCT of the CN Warman sub & CP Wilkie subs, both considered part of each Railways Prairie North Line. Note the long tankers cut in 314's consist!
Union Pacific's Tustin Branch crosses the San Diego Sub at CP College in Anaheim. Here, a late afternoon Metrolink train speeds by while the Marlboro Local waits for clearance in the distance. Shortly after the Metrolink passed he proceeded across.
The remnants of the T-boned Maine Central 375(Guilford Rail) just north of the diamond in Momence. The engine, or prime mover, is nearby in the dirt.
