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.

Metra UP-W Line Cab-Car Ride: C&NW Power at West Chicago & More!
Riding inbound (eastbound) Metra / Union Pacific- West Line train #510, from West Chicago to Ogilvie Transportation Center (Northwestern Station) in downtown Chicago, as seen from the front vestibule window of the cab-car. Not the whole ride is shown; just these tidbits: First, a surprise just past the West Chicago depot: unpatched, ex-Chicago & North Western Dash-9 #8710 leads a Union Pacific SD70M with an autorack train and some manifest freight tacked on the rear. It's quite rare that a freight these days could be called "CNW 8710 West"! Once this passes, the new signals that replaced the C&NW-style signal bridge between West Chicago and Winfield, along with the now-signalless bridge, can be seen as we hit Metra's track speed before coming to a station stop at Winfield. Next, past Winfield, is a road overpass under construction, just before the old Chicago, Aurora & Elgin (CA&E) electric interurban bridge over what is now UP's triple-track main into Chicago. The bridge carried the CA&E's line to Elgin, which had a branch to Geneva. Just south of this bridge were the CA&E's Wheaton Shops, and its Aurora line, with a branch to Batavia. The CA&E was owned by the same interests that controlled the North Shore Line to Milwaukee, the South Shore Line to South Bend, and many other electric interurban railroads-- unfortunately, the CA&E was the first to go of these, and the South Shore is the only one still in operation today. Thankfully though, the entire CA&E system (except its run over the CTA 'L' into Chicago) is preserved in the form of a popular hiking and biking trail- the Illinois Prairie Path, which was the first Rail-Trail in the nation, founded in 1963. Lastly, as train #510 nears Chicago and the sun has set, the last suburb it passes through before the city limits is Oak Park. Chicago Transit Authority's Green Line- Lake Street parallels the line here on the same embankment as UP, from Harlem Ave in River Forest, to Laramie Ave on the West Side of Chicago. A train of 1970s-era Boeing-Vertol 2400-series cars, (the second-oldest rostered by the CTA, and used on this line and the Purple Line), passes our train as it makes its second-last stop at the Oak Park Avenue station. Thanks for watching!

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.

Chicago & Northwestern train @ Seeman Road - GREAT HORN!

Railroad Swing Bridge Clinton, Iowa
