BNSF Hodgkins 0037 12-3-12 by eyepilot13 BNSF Hodgkins 0037 12-3-12 by eyepilot13
12/3/12: Interesting power on the Chili Sub! The Galesburg Run powered by a tri-clops pair of SD60Ms along with the usual B40-8Ws! On a 72 degree December evening!

Looks like there's still some fight left in these girls! And check out the lead unit: she has the same number as the original NS heritage unit!

As far as I can tell (as pper FLICKR), I'm the only one so far to catch the SD60Ms leading B40-8Ws.

From Laramie Ave Bridge...It is fenced but there are openings by the streetlight towers. Or possibly Cicero Ave. Metra Stop.

They brought a few out of the deadline and have been running out of Hodgkins, when I saw some shots on FLICKR I knew I needed to get there. I was pretty amazed!

Let's face it.. UP is still running their SD60Ms on mainline trains because they are proving their worth unlike the new crap which while horsepower effective is not as reliable because its all computerized including the horn.

That makes a lot of sense! CP Rail, NS, and CSX also frequently use SD60s still.
