CR GP40-2 3354
Title:  CR GP40-2 3354
Description:  CR GP40-2 3354 on a transfer run at BN's Cicero, Illinois yard on an unknown day in June 1980, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. Here's my best guess on what transpired here. These units were dragging a transfer over to the BN from CR. There were two possible routes (at the time of this photo): up the old PRR to Union Station and divert at 18th Street through Union Avenue Interlocking, and down the suburban line to Cicero (the likely scenerio) or across on the BRC, either way, it was a lot of 20 mph stop and go stuff, and it probably took the crew a good 8-10-12 hour day (less than 100 miles, round trip), depending on traffic, to complete a turn from CR to BN and return. The units will cut of the train, runaround, and pick up a newly sorted train off the Cicero Hump and drag it back to home rails. I'm pretty sure a BN switcher set the caboose right, not a consideration anymore.

CR 3389
Title:  CR 3389
Description:  I wished I could've seen the GG-1, E-44, and E-33 electrics that frequented Enola just eight years prior to this, but they and the cantenary that powered them were long gone by visit.

TV 79
Title:  TV 79
Description:  TV 79 was a hot van train that ran through to Santa Fe to become their 199 train. It got priority over pretty much everything. Here it is behind typical power for this type train at that time, a quartet of GP40-2s.

TV 79
Title:  TV 79
Description:  TV 79 was one of the hottest trains on the railroad, only a little cooler than TVLA, which was a direct run through to the Santa Fe. TV 79 also handled Santa Fe traffic, but did not run through, and had to transfer across Chicago. I think it may have also handled cars for Chicago delivery at 51st St. Here we see it blasting through the station behind a four unit set of GP 40-2s, a common power set for this type train.
