Started working on BNSF's Beardstown sub Monday.

Yesterday I missed getting a pic of a couple of NS Heritage engines SD70ACe Savanna & Georgia and today I missed getting a pic of NS Virginian Heritage SD70ACe.

I was able to take these pics today

Got these earlier this week; today we finished on the Beardstown Sub and Monday night begin working on the Aurora Sub in Savanna, IL



Looks like a former KCS SW1500 on a NS train; a literal grab shot; sorry I didn't get the engine number.

An westbound BNSF grain train crossing over the UP double main at Girard, IL.

I have no idea what rail line used to cross over this bridge outside of Girard, IL

These stone arch bridges are about a tenth of a mile to the right of the pic above,
