Occupational hazard
Title:  Occupational hazard
Description:  When you come to a busy place like Rochelle, there's always a chance a train will be going by as you arrive with no opportunity to shoot it properly. In this case, both eastbound and westbound UP coal trains were crossing 9th St. at the same time. The eastbound (loads) cleared first, and I fished out my DSLR and snapped this shot of the DPU on the westbound even though it was looking straight into the sun, just to have SOMETHING from the two trains.

Bad timing
Title:  Bad timing
Description:  Notice the clear signal for westbound movement on the north main. Given the time of day, would have preferred an unobstructed shot of the westbound intermodal which was solidly blocked by this train's coal gons. This was at least the third time on this day that eastbound and westbound trains passed at the park.

Description:  I WANTED to shoot this train from the north (sunlit) side, but thought the approaching eastbound intermodal would block me. Little did I know it was short enough that its tail would clear about 20 seconds before this train arrived! Argh!
