Remarks: This little show was taped after lunch in the oder shown. The westbound SOO is a detour train trying to reach Kansas City over the CNW do to flooding along the Mississippi River. The last scene of the EJ&J was the real treat considering the normally nocturnal nature of the J. The filming started just after it quit raining, but the humidity was smothering throughout the performance.

That is the possibly the best video of West Chicago! That was amazing seeing that Soo and CPRail combo with the SOO caboose on the end, and also seeing the EJ&E.

The humidity may have been smothering but this is certainly worth the sweat! Irreplaceable!
