    That's it!:)

    Even CN had a few switchers with the little oil-fired stove just ahead of the cab on the engineer's side.

    That CP S4 has a rather large cabinet for it. And it's missing the little cone on top.

    Well at least pole lines are something we don't have to contend with these days. :)

    Neat shot of the Skokie Swift, which operated on former North Shore right of way under wire. This was one of the last CTA lines with catenary. It's since been removed in favor of third rail.
