Our gang finished work in Hedley, TX and an eastbound train dropped off KCS SD70ACe 4103 to take our machines to Joliet; we caught them east of Wellington KS; I didn't have time to get to the sunny side of the tracks but it didn't turn out too bad.

Our machines got to Joliet early Tuesday morning in a small yard at MP 36. I took a few pics when I could.
