    Happy Friday everyone. I don't know about the rest of you, but my week shot by. Didn't get much sleep, changed a lot of diapers, but it's still all a blur.

    Another from my archives. Again, it's 2005 Chicago suburbs. EJ&J MOW equipment. Somewhere out in West Chicago area I think.

    One from my archives, too:


    A few years ago, the AMT donated this GP9RM to the museum (their first GP9). It was delivered in 1959 to CN as their #4307, in their third to last GP9 order. It became part of CN's long-running GP9RM program, gaining a chopped nose and 645 power assemblies in the process, bumping output to 1800 hp. The dynamic brake grids, which had long been disconnected, were removed outright, along with their associated fan. In their place went the engine air filters.

    Behind it is coupled one of the old AMT commuter cars, a hand-me-down Hawker-Siddeley from Toronto's GO Transit. These have long since been replaced by Bombardier-built bi- and tri-level cars (some of which are also GO hand-me-downs).

    From last Saturday in Myrtle Beach, SC, my wife and I found the wonderfully restored ACL depot, built 1937. A beer distributor had previously owned it and had nearly ruined the structure with an addition built of concrete block and a roll up garage door. It sits at the end of a long branch line now owned by R.J. Corman that has seen little activity in many years.

    Here are a number of Privately owned cars westbound climbing Bozeman Pass on Saturday, 9/17. I can't take credit for these photos, but it was nice to see this train come through town.
