CF&E rail train.

Post by RDJ » Wed Feb 29, 2012 2:03 pm

Coming home from Chicago yesterday, 2-28-12, I say a WB CF&E local working grain cars at Hamlet.
Could not get photo or information.

However, just west of EZ Camp camp grounds I saw a WB CF&E rail train.
Train had stopped, I expect waiting for the local to clear up.

Location was roads N900E and E Yellowstone Trail.

CF&E GP38-2 #3883 was power for rail train.

Attached are a couple of photos.

Great pics, Richard. I'm surprised there no buffer car behind the engine. Ken 8)

There is another string of welded rail cars sitting in Warsaw behind Creighton Brothers (near Selby). Looks very similar to what's in the pictures. CWRX are the reporting marks. There had been a string of welded rail cars for LB Foster stored on the Winona siding, but those disappeared when the covered hoppers were added to the string of coal hoppers.
