BNSF 7826 - Grain Train - State Street - Madison, IL.

BNSF 7826 sits on TRRA tracks north of Madison Yard.

BNSF 7826 is on the point of a parked grain train sitting next to State Street, on which a tumbleweed is slowly rolling down. These tracks are owned by the Terminal Railroad Association (TRRA), and are just north of the TRRA's Madison Yard. Behind BNSF 7826 is an ex-Santa Fe Warbonnet painted locomotive. Here is another image of this same train a bit more from the side showing the ex-Santa Fe locomotive.

  1. Very nice shot of my favorite line. Interesting catch with the tumbleweed. I could have sworn I commented on the other pic which I liked as well.

    1. Thanks, Shelly.

      You probably did comment on the other photo of this train over on G+. Back when we were nearing the end of G+ I stopped posting photos directly there and would post them here, but then I would publish my blog post to G+. So, you probably commented over there. However, all of those near-the-end comments are lost to time now that G+ is gone.
