BNSF's Aurora Sub

Unread post by emdgp30 »

Started working on BNSF's Aurora Sub Monday morning. Unfortunately our shift starts at 230 am with a 6 hour window so not much chance of getting pics. While tied down in the siding at Chadwick, IL this morning around 9:15 this eastbound COFC-TOFC came through and I was able to get a pic.

Got a few pics while at work doing maintenance. CCET (Cincinnati Eastern) 2803 was built 8-1983 as Alaska Railroad 2803; became USRP (US Rail Partners) 2803; CCET 330 was built 1-1970 as SP 9133'; was rebuilt & renumbered 7559. Became MRL 7559 before being renumbered MRL 330

After work I went to the local grocery store and there were several railroad pics on the wall; unfortunately there were no captions/info on the pics. Also, the white spot/glare on some of the pics is from lights in the store.

A google picture search has some info on two of the photos.
