That's probably the Saluki as it has operated with Superliners. Could be the Illini.
But with the Midwest engine and those cars, it's not the CNO.

It turns out the City of New Orleans is now 3 Days A Week and does not arrive into Chicago on Sundays. Good correction.

Great picture and report as usual CRD.

In the Shops picture what are the two engines in the back One is very dirty along the side and the other looks like a Louisville and In Indiana.

The maroon unit is from the Louisville & Indiana. Since LIRC and CSS are both owned by Anacosta Pacific, they will sometimes move engines around between their properties. The Orange and black Geep is one of two GP38-3s owned by NICD for MOW and shop switching, which are sometimes loaned to CSS.
