BNSF 5446 Waiting at Chalfin Bridge

November 6, 2005. Chalfin Bridge, Illinois.

With the light of another fall day coming to a close, an empty BNSF iron ore train sits on the Union Pacific's Chester Subdivision, just north of Chalfin Bridge, Illinois. The Chester Subdivision is double-tracked, but this northbound train had to wait for three or four other northbound trains to clear the line before it could proceed into the St. Louis railroad gateway. While the northbound trains waited, a number of southbound Union Pacific trains would roll by.
