Digital Live Sound Video: A power short Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad uses a borrowed Illinois Central EMD GP 9 on one of their locals. a video by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I photographed this digital live sound video las week, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club in Oak Park Illinois.
Fellow club member and good friend "Rich", has created an occasional everyday "What If" situation on a working railroad.
Although most American railroads pretty much have a large fleet of locomotives available most of the time, those occasional times when several locomotives are out of service being down for repair, or working other assignments on any given railroad, locomotives from other railroads are sometimes leased or borrowed to help fill the demands caused by a shortage or two.
In this video, a power short Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad, has borrowed an Illinois Central EMD GP 9, to help assist working on a switching local on this day.
