Album Info:This album features trains along UP that my dad and I caught after we went to a small train show in St. Charles, IL for the first time. We were unable to go to the Great Midwest Train show in Wheaton this month so this train show and outing was going to make up for missing that. Enjoy!

UP 4655
Title:  UP 4655
Description:  Today my dad and I are going to a train show in St. Charles, IL since we missed the Great Midwest Train show in Wheaton last week. After church and the show we will railfan UP west to Rochelle. After church as we were heading to the show, we came across an eastbound UP manifest with 6 UP engines leading. The last 4 are engines that just recently came out of storage.
