CB&Q SD24 515
Title:  CB&Q SD24 515
Description:  Chicago Burlington & Quincy Railroad SD24 515 westbound at Naperville, Illinois on May 23, 1965, Ektachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Built in May 1959 (c/n 25212) on EMD Order 5598, it became BN 6255, then MMID 6255, then FRVR 2401, then WC 2401. Judging by the long shadows and new Great Northern U25B cut in behind the motors, this is most likely Train 83, daily freight between Chicago and St. Paul, departing Chicago at 6:40 PM.

run thru power
Title:  run thru power
Description:  Between the interlocking towers of St Anthony on the west end of the 4 track GN main and St Anthony Park on the double track NP main (not to be confused with Park Jct and the Minnesota Transfer crossing)--- I felt lucky to catch this set of run thru power on the Union Cutoff. As to why this transfer from Daytons Bluff came up the NP and then went thru the Union Cutoff at St Anthony Park instead of coming west on the GN freight mains from Westminster Tower is beyond me! So where was St Anthony Park and the Union Cutoff you ask?! Just west of the state fair grounds and Snelling Avenue where the circus trains used to unload and maybe still do today.
