Not a easy find
Title:  Not a easy find
Description:  ILSX 900 pulls the Chicago Terminal's Goose Island job over the Chicago River. This job is down to one day a week, as needed, so catching it isn't the easiest thing to do these days.

Chicago Terminal RR's SW8, formerly for their Goose Island District sits alone in the yard next to Metra's UP lines
Title:  Chicago Terminal RR's SW8, formerly for their Goose Island District sits alone in the yard next to Metra's UP lines
Description:  This cool unit faces an uncertain future after the last rail customer on Goose Island pulled out in 2015, and the city is apparently trying to force the railroad to abandon the track so the property can be redeveloped.
