Burlington Northern EMD yard switcher performing Amtrak terminal operations. Galesburg Illinois USA. June 1985., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo way back in June of 1985.
We are on location in the city of Galesburg Illinois USA.
I had just rode a chartered railfan excursion sponsored by the 20th Century Railroad Club of Chicago, to the Galesburg Railroad Days Celebration. Our Amtrak train for the occasion was named, "The Galesburg Zephyr".
After arriving in Galesburg Illinois and disembarking from the train, a local Burlington Northern Railroad EMD SW Series yard switcher, is viewed preparing to pull our train to the yard area for servicing.
