DREI crossing Lake Decatur Today
Author: mtzctrain

I happened to be out and about during my lunch hour today and got lucky with the Decatur & Eastern Illinois RR road train departing the yard, headed east. I was able to set up and catch the train crossing Lake Decatur. 3 units lead a 39 car train.

1. Train about to cross the bridge, with the locally Iconic Staley Pump House hiding behind the tree on the right.

2&3. Crossing the lake with some nice homes in the background.

Normally this train heads east in the afternoon/evening, so this was a rare catch. The sun was perfect for this, to top it off!

I'll have a video to follow later.

Here's the video I got of the train crossing the lake. The engineer put on a horn show for me while crossing the bridge.

I learned yesterday from one of the DREI engineers that WAMX 4002 was headed to Paris, IL for its 92-day inspection. Normally 4002 is used for the Decatur yard and interchange jobs.
