Big Boy at West Chicago

Unread postby Ypsi » Sun Jul 28, 2019 1:13 pm

Like thousands of others I caught the Big Boy in Chicago land on Friday. My spot was JB tower in west Chicago. This offered me a great amount of traffic leading up to the trains arrival as well as a rare chance to shoot the 4014 past an active interlocking tower.
