Album Info:A cloudy and windy Saturday before Christmas takes me to a couple of usual haunts, Bedford Park at the west end of Clearing Yard and Lavergne Station in Berwyn. As an added bonus, on the way to Berwyn I spotted a couple of GT units working a train out of CN's Glenn Yard in Chicago near I-55 and Harlem.

We Meet Again
Title:  We Meet Again
Description:  This is the same train I shot earlier in Bedford Park. It must have switched over to the north/south BRC line at 55th Street and then made the connection with the BNSF east of Clyde Yard and now heads west through Berwyn. Quite a circuituous route to see this train again.
