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.

C&NW 8646 East - the Chicago and NorthWestern "Twins" on 4-20-2014
The two remaining C44-9W engines in Chicago and Northwestern paint run the MCLPR-19 train toward Chicago on the Union Pacific's Geneva subdivision. This pair had been working around Chicago's Proviso Yard for the last few months. Then the local railfandom was abuzz when they were suddenly sent to Clinton, Iowa. On the return journey, they were held up at Nelson overnight. Which gave me the opportunity for this Easter morning catch. About 15 months prior I caught this duo leading an autorack train near sunset at the same location. http://youtu.be/o_ekePb-DGM Photo: https://flic.kr/p/niEovi

CNW 1385: On Track to Operation
On February 15, 2014, Midwest Zephyr Media made a side trip to SPEC Machine in Middleton, Wisconsin where the running gear of the Chicago and North Western steam locomotive #1385 was being rebuilt as part of the locomotive's full restoration to operating condition. An open house was organized by the locomotive's owner, the Mid-Continent Railway Museum, and SPEC Machine to help raise awareness of the project.

Railroad Crossovers (Diamonds) at Rochelle Railroad Park
Walked down closer to the diamonds to get a little detail on what they looked like. From the sounds of things, when trains hit those diamonds they really take on some punishment.

Rochelle IL in 1997 : C&NW + BN before the Railroad Park
Back in January 1997, shortly before the railroad park was built, I visited the busy diamonds at Rochelle, IL. Chicago & Northwestern and Burlington Northern (BNSF by that time) put on a great show. The video was shot at the diamonds and two separate crossings on the C&NW & BN east of town.

Goodbye C&NW Gurnee IL 1995
We see the C&NW Railroad shortly before the takeover by the Union Pacific in Gurnee, Illinois. A very long mixed C&NW freight with SD40-2s and GE C40-8s heads SB on the "New Line" subdivision. Many freight cars are lettered for C&NW. Shortly thereafter, a waiting NB C&NW freight with Wisconsin Electric Powder River coal moves out to the main, pulled by new C40-8's.
