Dates:4/14/2008 - 4/14/2008
Album Info:Spring refuses to take hold in the Midwest as temps stayed mainly in the upper 40's today but at least there was plentiful sunshine. I started the day in West Chicago and it seemed to be a bit slower than usual on the freight side of things but there were plenty of Metras to go around. I then headed over to the west end of BNSF's Eola Yard at the McClure Road grade crossing for the first time and saw plenty more Metras along with some BNSF freights. This was a pretty good spot that I will probably revisit in the future. All pics in this album were taken between 12:30 and 5pm CST.
