"A Red Nosed Visitor @ 'MH' Tower..."
Author: aussiehinz

Today's #449 (#49 minus the south of Albany passengers), the "Lake Shore Limited," arrived in Chicago with relatively clean "Heritage" P-42 #156 on the point. I managed a couple views of it as the train turned in front of "MH," then ambled on over to 18th Street for a few more, as the move was momentarily held for a Metra inbound train before proceeding toward the wash track. For those interested to the west, I've also included pix of today's #5 and #3, both on time and devoid of any unusual consist abberations, as they passed "MH" this afternoon.

Cheers,

aussiehinz

The first trick operator of 'MH' tower sure gets around!! Judging from all the different ground shots, he must be responsible for hooping up orders and giving roll-bys in several spots!!

Great pictures! The 156 is my favorite Amtrak Heritage engine.

otherwise identical consists?
