Author: MILW86A

Hows about some Sunday Chicago Central

2. 1775 leads 3 more on the Cedar Rapids to Manchester IA turn August 27 1991 just outside of Cedar Rapids. 

3. One of the few time CC's ex MILW Geeps appeared on the Cedar Rapids Switcher on ex MILW Trackage. Here at my hometown of Marion IA 
Summer of 1992. Sadly you cannot get this scene anymore. 

Thank you.

Did any of the ex MILW GP2O'S ever get repainted into CCP red?   Better times, better days.   

Excelent images.

One got the red paint.  I can't recall the number right now, but it was renumbered into the 1800 series.  Well, crews and mechanical complained because they wanted to know which were the
ex-Milwaukee engines due to nmechanical issues, so it got renumbered back to its 900 number.

That's sad that the mechanical and operating crews could not tell the difference without having to make it so obvious.   It's not that hard to tell based off outside appearance.   Given they are operating around them every day you'd think they could have figured many ways that fans don' even know to tell.

I think it was the 1878 that got the red. 
Id have to look at my records.

Boy, Dave, you really had to go a long way to get #3!  Brought back some wonderful memories when they serviced Katz Salvage, Prince Agriculture and Linn Coop (amonia tanks on that goosey siding of theirs)

Nice to see these. Waterloo must have been a hopping place back in the day. CN still seems fairly busy.
