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.
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.
Ghost of the C&NW, Amtrak 8 Meets CP 185 8/6/2007
Some sweet trains my dad caught on Monday, August 6. First, at the County Highway P crossing west of Randolph, is an eastbound Union Pacific Adams Subdivision train led by UP 3042, one of only a handful of locomotives left in dingy Chicago & Northwestern green and yellow. 3042 started life as CNW 6877. UP 3225, also an SD40-2, trails. Moving south to Reeseville, a good-sized CP Train 185 heads west behind GE ES44ACs CP 8846 and 8809, SD40-2 CP 6063 and Soo Line SD60 6034. While that train is passing, Amtrak #8, the eastbound Empire Builder, races through on the other track!
