SOO SD40 743
Title:  SOO SD40 743
Description:  SOO SD40 743 westbound at Oak Park, Illinois on an unknown day in December 1979, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. I believe this is a transfer run from the BRC at Clearing Yard (Bedford Park) to Bensenville. In less than a mile this train will climb over the traffic on the left (Eisenhower Expressway, I-90) and turn north, so they are running for the hill. Where you see automobiles in this photo was once the Chicago Aurora & Elgin Railway's right of way. The rails on the left are the CTA, the rails on the right I believe belonged to the B&OCT.

Grain east
Title:  Grain east
Description:  Once CP started to integrate operation of the D&H systemwide, a 390 was established that ran from Minneapolis to Port of Albany. This train often got SOO power a lot of the time in solid sets. Todays effort is a mix of power, including one of CP's ex NS SD40-2's that was made into a B unit-note the 4th unit with blanked windows-as we see it passing signal 223-1 wrong main on the last lap into Binghamton with a typical train of 91 cars.
