Keokuk Junction 8/7/19 Pictures
Author: dtoeppen

Here are a few pictures from final run on 8/7/19. I've included a couple previously-posted pictures in order to maintain continuity. 

1 - Train sitting between Kolbe and Mapleton, idling and ready to go.
2 - Somber moment
3 - Crowd is growing.

4 - Camera awaits arrival of crew
5 - Photographers ready for action
6 - East of Canton, IL, waiting for train. I made a mental note how pleasant it was that there were no barking dogs. Moments later, two dogs spotted me and alerted the whole town and continued to do so until I left.

7 - Train stopped at Seville, IL
8 - Lucky cab rider boards for ride of a lifetime.
9 - Train crossing Spoon River bridge on second pass. Earlier, they posed it on the center of the bridge for a few minutes so people could get all the shots they wanted. Remember, this is a freight train doing a revenue trip. It's not a fan trip. But the wonderful crew indulged the crowd to an astonishing degree.

10 - Two lucky cab riders, out of six or eight who got to ride
11 - Entourage at New Philadelphia, IL. New Phildelphia seems much cleaner than old Philadelphia :-)
12 - Bushnell, IL, waiting for the F''s

13 - Always know what's happening behind you :-) In all seriousness, nothing was happening. Signals were red for the diamond and BNSF was waiting on both sides. 
14 - Good Hope, IL
15 - Crew and some other guy waves to crowd.

Haha, believe it or not, in the winter time, they put clothes on her so she doesn't get cold!
