Have power, will travel! These 5 units are heading to the freight yard, looking for a train.
The train to Grand Rapids passes an F40PH converted to a cab control/baggage car.
Can't let the WC through until the inbound Dinky (commuter train) gets past.
Another WC train waits for the signal, and Amtrak #5 leaves Chicago, heading for Oakland.
While a Wisconsin Central freight crosses the Metra Rock Island tracks.
Amtrak's inbound California Zephyr arrives...nearly on time!
Peeking through the trees, two locomotives power a Metra Commuter train on its way to Joliet, Illinois.
The view of Chicago railroad activity, as seen from the 18th street viaduct is a railroad buff's dream. In the foreground is part of Amtrak's Chicago Maintenance Facility.
