Album Info:I started the day in Lemont and this was my first railfan trip to the SW suburb. I hung around the Ceco Road grade crossing (one of the few on the BNSF Transcon between Chicago and Joliet) and shot a few trains but the frequency wasn't adequate for me (I don't like waiting longer than 20-30 mins for a train) so I pulled up stakes and headed back to my town of residence, Chicago Ridge. I parked in the Metra lot near 103rd and Ridgeland and proceeded to see one of the trains I shot in Lemont! It must have switched off the BNSF at McCook and came down the IHB to where I was. I also shot my first pure KCS lashup which I had never seen before on the IHB. A sign of things to come?
