"Some Chicago Freight Activity..."
Author: aussiehinz

Here are a few freight movements I captured recently around the "neighborhood..."

Cheers,

aussiehinz


1. UPY 736 takes head room up the St. Charles Air Line ramp while swinging bare tables at the Global One intermodal facility... 11-12-12

2. A CN eastbound train off the Iowa main crosses Metra's Rock Island District at 16th Street Tower... 11-16-12

3. The same train has now turned south and is rolling down CN's former IC main line along the Lake Michigan lakefront. Here it passes 55th Street in Hyde Park.

4. A BNSF to NS ethanol train eases past AMTK "Heritage" P42 $156 at Canal Street, waiting to turn an equipment set... 11-16-12

5. The same BNSF train has now rounded the south leg of the wye and heads toward the NS Chicago Line at 21at Street... 11-16-12

6. An NS to BNSF empty ethanol unit train passes "MH" on its way to Western Avenue, and a crew change... 11-16-12

Nice, I was hoping you caught some of these. I had to watch helplessly as the 1:30 Metra train out of CUS rolled past all those trains including another mt tank train between Western and Cicero. I think your last shot is actually an ethanol mt.

Yes. You are right, indeed it is. I got the DEEX empty a few minutes later at the same spot, but with BNSF power. Kind thanks for the correction.
