Eclectic Power on the HBRCGAL
Author: kevink

Due to a morning appointment yesterday (Thursday 9/14), I caught a later Metra train into Chicago. I was rewarded during my wait at Clarendon Hills on the BNSF Chicago Sub with the HBRCGAL (Belt Railway Chicago to Galesburg IL). The train was powered by NS 4577, NS 8101 (Central of Georgia) and 2 BNSF GE's. Trailing were four locomotives heading to new owners. 
1. NS 4577 and train
2. NS 8101
3. GECX 7365 behind a former NS GE which was also patched and wearing GECX reporting marks 

But what was bringing up the rear of this assortment of power?

Bringing up the rear of the interesting power on the HBRCGAL were two end cab switchers. 
4. BUGX (ex-CN) 1204
5. BUGX (ex-IC) 1492

and a bonus freight car
6. VTGX 350050

Nice shot of the CofG given its unfortunate placement in the consist,

It's one of two NS HU's I just can't seem to catch, the other being the NYC unit.

That's a wild consist! Great catch. I saw some of the BUGX ex-CN switchers bouncing around on CN a year ago or so, neat to see them these days.
