Ah right... A guy 500 feet up spots a woman smartly dressed & looking gorgeous , so he wolf whistles..

500ft where did you get that!!

At 500ft it is unlikely anyone on the ground would hear.

Please get real wolf whistles and comments called out to passing women are degrading.

Pleas don't make excuses and join most of the men here, some of whom are just paying lip service to this thread.

More or less when expected the 6 arrived with 119 and 7 on point and a very naked looking 642.



Bit of a close up.



A just for comparison this was 640 earlier this month



I wonder what they are going to do with it and why 642?

I hope 10pm isn't too late for you to be up. #6 should be going through Mendota right about now.


Nope rarely before midnight.

6 currently says "Naperville 3:34PM CT Chicago 4:17PM"

As to late nights, last week I saw this at Berea



Heritage unit NS 8098 Conrail. It so happens that Railstream has a temporary camera at Toledo for "National Train Day" this coming weekend. As I was viewing it about two hours later I saw this.



And it occurred to me that if it was heading for Chicago I could get a good shot at Chesterton, that would be about 5-6 hours time It was 6pm BST when I saw it at Toledo.

So I stayed up, about 00:35 it came through, unfortunately there was an eastbound freight with hoppers on the other track and all I saw was a glimpse of the blue top of the loco. :-(

Of course the annoying post script to this is, what was one of the first trains I saw at Chesterton next day? Yep you guessed



Now in the lead!

Nuts. It made up 8 minutes from Mt. Pleasant to Burlington.

I'm sure the passengers don't think that is Nuts.

Probably not but on a 51 hour journey 8 minutes it not really noticeable :-)

It is now apparently due in Chicago at 3:57 PM CT, or 9:57 pm BST.

I will be ready but my recent luck with these cameras has been poor!

As you can see here, the City of New Orleans train 58 was early and I got a shot on the bridge, however the sun at that time was not helpful to see details.



I then totally missed the first two cars coming into camera on the reverse.




However got a quite nice one of the Iowa Pacific dome car



And the Pullman behind.



And an overall shot of the whole lot backing into the station.



It seems I may have forgotten to post this pic I got last week form the Rochelle IL camera



Seem it is the $8.3 million UP EC-5 track geometery machine.

Of course it would have looked more impressive if it wasn't being towed!!

Attention Bernie!

Train 58 City of New Orleans on Monday morning will have five private cars.

Southern Pacific "Birch Grove" (the name was given by Amtrak; SP did not give it a name)
Louisville & Nashville "Oliver Hazard Perry"
Pullman/IC "Baton Rouge" (don't remember its history), "Sky View" (Santa Fe full dome), "Belleville" (California Zephyr sleeper Silver Quail) -- the non-domes are in a vinyl wrap, not actual brown and orange paint.

Train was reported on time out of Memphis.

Thanks for the heads up, luckily the Chicago camera was fixed late Saturday so I will try for some shots.

Amtrak says currently 21 minutes early at Chicago, 8:39am CT which is 2:39PM BST. It was 40 minutes early yesterday and had to wait at the end of the airline bridge for the 391 to reverse out of Chicago cross the tracks and pass it on the bridge!!

Should be posted here?

No the poster is trying to stir up debate so best left where it is.
