"Summer in December..."
Author: aussiehinz

With the afternoon temperature in Chicago reaching the low 60's, I ventured out around town a bit for a few errands and trains. Been a little while for me, my first-born daughter was married this past weekend, making for a somewhat hectic period recently.



1. Amtrak #7, the "Empire Builder," just getting underway on its trek to the Pacific Northwest, crossing Racine Avenue... 2:18 PM CST, December 4, 2012

2. Metra westbound on Track 2, passing under Canal Street and approaching "MH" Tower... 2:43 PM CST, December 4, 2012

3. Amtrak #3, the "Southwest Chief," wading through lengthening shadows at "MH,"... 3:04 PM CST, December 4,2012

Two of the 800's on the Southwest Chief. Nice to see them getting in some long run miles.

Does METRA use MPI power on BNSF Aurora service??

Not for the last six months or so. They were all reassigned to ex RI and ex MILW routes earlier in 2012.

So, AH, were you a successful father and raise her as a rail fan?

Gave it my best. Both daughters can "hold their own" in most any railroad discussion.
