UP 9639
Title:  UP 9639
Description:  The first few shots were taken along the IHB main near 131st and Francisco in Blue Island. This is a great spot I found right along 131st Street and there's even a stairway leading up to the tracks with no "No Trespassing" signs anywhere. The line crosses the Cal-Sag Channel just south of here and heads into Blue Island Junction.

BNSF 6037, 6035 & CSX 88 & 8709
Title:  BNSF 6037, 6035 & CSX 88 & 8709
Description:  I spun around just in time to catch the BNSF train streaming northbound past the CSX train. Both trains were doing at least 35-40 mph as trackwork was done recently so trains could move faster through the junction.
