TOTAL RECALL ON THE RACETRACK.

Last weekend featured excellent conditions for photography of the Nebraska Zephyr excursion.

Rusty Traque was at Western Springs on Saturday, in just the right place to see the Zephyr, which left Chicago at 9 am, overtake the regular commuter train out of Union Station at 8.30.


Joe Balynas was down the line at Highlands, with a great shot from the soon-to-be-replaced classic Burlington wooden bridge.  This picture is from Sunday, when the commuter train schedule is different.


I'm still looking for video of the Zephyr rolling through Macomb at 79 mph.  There's a signboard for engineers reading Macomb: 14 crossings, meaning a lot of horn accompaniment.
