As UP\'s A-B-A set of E9s depart Joliet Station, all of the BNSF workers replacing the Jefferson Street Bridge immediatly stop what they are doing and watch the train depart. I thought this was a interesting perspective of the BNSF and UP.
UP E9A 949 pulls up to UD tower in Joliet with a business train. The classic looking Es and the tower make for a scene that looks like it is from the 1960s, not 2006. It was just like going back in time.
EJ&E 650 holds westbound in Joliet. The engine is a non dash 2 SD38 and it still wears the old paint scheme. It is the only unrebuilt non Dash 2 SD38 on the system. It is due to be sent to Gary for a rebuild to dash 3 standards as well as new paint soon.
