Empire Builder racing out of the Chicago city limits
Author: inCHI

It's quiet here today, so I'll post something I took today that isn't anything special, but what I took. I'm testing a different camera setup that my usual, and pointed it at the Empire Builder as it cruises through Edgebrook, IL, which is right on the very meadering northern/northwest border of Chicago. The guy walking his dogs at the end of the video came up and asked if I saw the Canadian National (really, CP) business train go by the other day, alas, I did not, and I didn't think it took this route.

In a few weeks I'll be on 7 headed to Montana passing through here, a long-awaited trip. I'm hoping that no further drastic reductions in on board services take effect before now and then.

Why does the Empire Builder always looks dirty while the Coast Starlight always shines?

Still hard to believe only one coach on the Seattle section!
