FURX 3042 Leading a Tank Car Train

November 12, 2005. Chalfin Bridge, IL.

Last week I posted the shot of the tanker train going away from me, this week I'm posting the same train as it approaches me. On the point is First Union Rail (FURX) 3042, with an ex-Conrail unit, as they lead a tanker train north on the Union Pacific's Chester Subdivision.

  1. Very nice shot. Like the angle and repetition. Weird that for some reason my tag did not take.

  2. Thank you, Shelly Gunderson

    That is odd that your tag didn't take. I didn't even catch that at first.

  3. Motoring right along. Nice leading lines, Tom.

  4. Thanks a lot, ᙅYᙖᙓᖇ ᗪOᙅ™.

  5. Very nice capture, Tom.👍👍👍
