ImageFisher Body by Jonathon Leese, on Flickr

Grand Elk’s time switching GM’s Fisher Body plant in Wyoming was very short-lived. Grand Elk took over in the spring of 2009, and the plant would close for good later that year. Until that point, however, the body panels built here still needed to be moved. Here is WAMX 3829 pulling 4 hi-cube boxcars out of the plant. These cars were interchanged to CSX daily and added to the Canadian Pacific run-through train X500, which would take them to Oshawa in Canada. The impending closure of this plant played a big part in Norfolk Southern’s decision to sell this line, I’m sure. 6/19/2009

Sitting all by itself just outside of town, this former Seaboard GP16 is the sole unit on this outpost of Pioneer's Elkhart & Western. Operating what remains of the former Monon east of its namesake, the line has but one customer, a fertilizer dealer, and is only served seasonally. 4/3/2022

Since It’s railroad days at Durand, I figured I’d share my latest slide in my collection.


A GTW crewman pulls down on the water spout at Durand for what is more than likely a 4-6-2 pacific In November of 1958. Note: the gold and red lettered herald logo used for passenger locomotives.

ImageClassic by Jonathon Leese, on Flickr

To me, nothing says "CSX" more than a nose headlight SD40-2 with blanked-out class lights, fading yellow and blue paint, and a cab-mounted K5LA. #8070 and a C40-8W have a short Q326 in tow as they work east through the dip between 32nd and 36th Streets in Kentwood. The 8070 was a frequent visitor to west Michigan during this time period. 5/3/2009

ImageReplacement by Jonathon Leese, on Flickr

Following the old IC branch west of Rantoul, IL, my friends and I were hoping to find the rare GP28 owned by the elevator here in Dewey. We were a bit surprised to see this ex CNW GP50 instead. The Co-Op still owns the GP28, which is parked in the barn with mechanical issues and from what we understand, is for sale. 4/2/2022

ImageRebuilt 40 by Jonathon Leese, on Flickr

Q327 rolls west near Elmdale on a hot and humid August afternoon in 2010. Leading the trailing GP38-2 is SD40-2 #8440, rebuilt from an ex Union Pacific SD40 in the early 90s by MKM for CSX. I'm not certain, but I think all of the 8400 series SD40s (and maybe even some of the 8300s) on CSX were rebuilds like this one. 8/8/2010

ImageP371 With Amtubes by Jonathon Leese, on Flickr

NPCU #90368 leads an atypical Pere Marquette consist in the form of 4 Amfleets near Michigan City. The PM normally operates with 3 or 4 Superliners. 4/17/2016
