Dates:3/29/2008 - 3/29/2008
Album Info:It's been about three weeks since my last railfan run (mostly due to bad weather) but today was well worth the trip. Mild temps and fairly clear skies led me to Elmhurst for a very busy day including some brand new UP GEVOs fresh out of the factory. Locations include Elmhurst Metra Station, Haven Road and Poplar Ave grade crossings, and the Berkeley Metra Station right outside of UP's Proviso Yard. All pics in this album were taken between 12:30 and 3:30 pm CST.
