CIM 18
Title:  CIM 18
Description:  Not at all sure about the date on this one. I think it was the Summer of 78, but that was a long time ago. Anyway, this is a scan of a slide that was made from an old insta-matic print.

CIM 71
Title:  CIM 71
Description:  A pair of SD38-2s. Again, a scan of slide from an insta-matic print. I believe the camera was a Vivitar that used those little 110 cartriges. Ah, the good old days...

CIM 31
Title:  CIM 31
Description:  For a while there, pretty much everyone passing through Springfield, IL stopped to get this photo. But you have to admit, those RS1325s were kinda cool.

CIM 60
Title:  CIM 60
Description:  This might look like a C&IM move, or maybe C&NW, but, uh...no, its actually an Illinois Terminal freight at LeClaire Jct in Edwardsville, IL. IT leased units from C&IM - seriously, C&IM! - in the early 80s.

CIM 70
Title:  CIM 70
Description:  Another C&IM unit leading an IT freight through Edwardsville, this time paired with a "borrowed" SP tunnel motor. It really was not unusual around this time to see Illinois Terminal moves with no IT power.
