C. Vision's tour of railroads in and around the Chicagoland area continues in Windy City Rails, Volume 7, installment #2.
In this program we will examine a few more of the smaller railroads and lesser-known operations around the greater Chicagoland and surrounding areas.
Our tour will continue with roads Iowa Interstate, Central Illinois Railroad, Illinois Railway (former Illinois Railnet), Wisconsin & Southern, South Chicago & Indiana Harbor, (former Chicago Short Line) the normally nocturnal Chicago Fort Wayne & Eastern and view a few "lost" scenes from the late Iowa, Chicago & Eastern.
See the latest Iowa Interstate GE Locomotives, including their "Rock Island" Heritage engine, witness the very last days of a snazzy urban switching carrier, chase sand trains on the Illinois Railway, stay up late to view the passing of the WSOR's road freights to/from Chicago, see sharp maroon and yellow switchers in the Calumet region of Chicago's southside, discover an interesting mix of EMD power on an elusive entity of shortline operator RailAmerica and view a few spots around the city where the IC&E is not normally found. All this and more can be seen in Windy City Rails, Volume #7: Shortlines and Regionals #2!
