UP E9A 949 pulls up to UD tower in Joliet with a business train. The classic looking Es and the tower make for a scene that looks like it is from the 1960s, not 2006. It was just like going back in time.
Great Northern motorcar #573 sits in Sheridan during a stop. This motorcar has a electronic bell, 4 seats, and a cooler on the back of it. This was the car we all rode in during the trip. The great ride and the nice weather made for the perfect trip.
EJ&E 650 holds westbound in Joliet. The engine is a non dash 2 SD38 and it still wears the old paint scheme. It is the only unrebuilt non Dash 2 SD38 on the system. It is due to be sent to Gary for a rebuild to dash 3 standards as well as new paint soon.
BNSF GP39E #2911 is wearing another unusual paint scheme. This one is BN green with a BNSF logo on the side with BNSF lettering on the side. The road number is in a white oval. This paint scheme is sure more attractive then BNSF 4340.
