3 tracks, 3 trains by classictrains 3 tracks, 3 trains by classictrains
You've seen this stretch of track in my deviations before... but this time I opted for the normal lens. Main 2 has a Union Pacific DPU pushing an empty coal train back to Wyoming. Headed towards us on Main 3 is a Metra commuter that just left the Elburn Station. In the far distance on Main 1 is a mixed freight that is drifting towards us as the congestion clears that was caused by the Metra when it crossed over behind me at CP Peck an hour ago.

I took a couple of shots with the Tele too but opted for a "normal" view for a change.

Thanks Traci... almost every coal train these days has a DPU on it.
