Preserved Burlington Northern Railroad 1974 General Electric U 30C diesel locomotive. The Illinois Railway Museum. Union Illinois USA.
This photo of a recently restored and repainted relic of the former Burlington Northern Railroad, brought back some very happy and special memorys for Me on a Friday, July 3rd 2009 visit.
During the 1980's and early 1990's, I frequently would visit downtown west suburban La Grange Illinois for an afternoon of lineside railfan photography with My trusty 35MM camera in hand. Sometimes I would bring My 2nd hand Kodak 8MM Brownie wind up silent 8MM movie camera too. The many freight trains passing through La Grange Illinois behind these Cascade green and black 2nd generation diesel locomotives from both EMD and GE, were very colorful attention getters back in those days.
