Shortline Sunday
Author: swaool

Sometimes a shortline doesn't look like a shortline; such as when handling unit coal trains.  Here's a C&IM SD38-2/SD9/RS1325/SD38-2 combination with a coal train at Havana, IL on 7/25/77.  Lead unit 74 later became UPY 804, and was assigned to Bailey Yard in North Platte NE.

This is the Chicago & Illinois Midland Railway Company since the originator did not spell it out for all of us.

Why is a railroad forum so against the use of reporting marks lol
