CNW 3-fer at Rochelle

Three C&NW movements pass through the junction at Rochelle, IL in the days before UP ownership and the railfan park. The parking area used to be on the north side of the tracks, limiting your photo options and resulting in backlit conditions. But we made do with it somehow...

Railroad Swing Bridge Clinton, Iowa
Railroad swing bridge at Mississippi River at Clinton Iowa. This ex Chicago and NorthWestern Bridge double track bridge sees a lot of traffic, just before the bridge opened for a barge this day, a pair of Eastbound trains went across side by side. Nice river front park to watch the action.

Action at Rochelle, IL around 1990-91-ish.
Two BN intermodal trains, a coal load and coal empty on the CNW led by UP power.

Burlington Northern/Chicago Northwestern In The Powder River Basin, WY -1991
WARNING: This is probably the most boring railroad video you'll ever watch! Two hours of Powder River Basin coal trains in uninspiring landscape. Lots of wind noise (It's Wyoming, the wind always blows). :) That out of the way, for those who want to see PRB operations in the earlier 1990's you might enjoy this video. Back in those days a good part of the PRB was still single track, with some sections of double track. Compare that with today, where most of the PRB is triple track with some sections of 4-track mainline! It was still Chicago Northwest with trackage rights into the PRB, not the UP. Lots of older power too. Tons of BN SD40-2's and C30-7's. SD60M's were just starting to show up on the scene. And brand new UP AC4400's (which are still the mainstay of UP coal train power today, after all these years). There's only one non-coal train in the entire video, a BN intermodal that spent all day slowly winding it's way through the CF of coal trains. The PRB was a total mess in those days. An engineer told me it wasn't unusual for a crew to board a train sitting in siding and sit in the same spot for 12 hours until relieved by the next crew! This video was shot a few years before the new public road was built that currently runs down to Antelope Creek and NACCO Junction, which IMO is the most scenic area of the PRB. Locations include: Walker Siding, East and West ends. East Bill and the Bill area. Middle of nowhere between NACCO Jct. and Reno Jct. Reno Jct. Loading facility at the Black Thunder Mine. All video was originally shot on 8mm tape using a Sony camcorder. Let me know if you stay awake the entire two hours! :) Enjoy.

Yet MORE Rochelle Action
Three intermodal trains at Rochelle, IL around 1990. If you are a student of modern railroading, just look at how the face of intermodal traffic has changed in the 19 years since I took these videos. Many times I would film the entire train, nowdays I am glad that I did.

Final Years of the Union Pacific (CNW) Weber-Mayfair Sub I
This is probably the only known footage of activity on the Union Pacific's (former Chicago & Northwestern) railroad's "Weber" or "Mayfair Cutoff." The subdivision covered the far north-side of Chicago, Lincolnwood, Skokie and Evanston (Illinois). Footage is from March, 2004. I spent over 15 years getting photos of this line as the customers it served dropped off to the one you see being served in this movie. I wish I had a video camera in the 1990's, 80's and 70's. But this is the best I could do. To learn more about this line and the wonderful people who have helped preserve its history, please visit our group website at http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/group/cnw_weber_sksub/ There are also two excellent books covering this line--and its sister line known as the Skokie Subdivision--at http://www.cnwhs.org/shopping/advanced_search_result.php?keywords=mayfair&x =7&y=7 If you or someone you know has memories, photos or video, about this line or the Skokie Sub, please contact us through the website or enter your comments below.

First CSX trains after the Blizzard on 1994. PART I...
Southwestern Pennsylvania got hammered with a 30+ inch snow storm, which shut down the railroad, and everything else, for a few days. On January 4th, 1994, things started rolling again. We watch the first few trains pass my front porch, and at the crossing down the street at mp294.5, ex-B&O now CSX Pittsburgh sub. The snow clogged horns, sound pretty ruff, but it was still an impressive sight. Be sure to check the link to part II, the day after the storm... Thanks for watching. Jackmp294.5™...
