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...

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.
