Pioneer Zephyr, Western Springs, IL by eyepilot13 Pioneer Zephyr, Western Springs, IL by eyepilot13
9/22/12: I manage to get to the Racetrack and catch the Pioneer Zephyr IRM excursion to Galesburg... One of my more challenging shots! I'm on the southside of the tracks, away from foamers but an inbound BNSF UCT would block my shot so I race through the pedestrian underpass tunnel and climb the embankment just in time, but the UCT plays hell with my autofocus and the PZ comes racing by on M-2!

Wow-- stunning capture! I’m going to have to echo a lot of the comments posted above me-- they just don’t make passenger trains as appealing as they used to. Although the contrast between the vintage streamliner and the modern freight cars could emphasize that point, in the right light, those hoppers look just traditional enough to pass for a period steam-era freight, too. Cool shot however you look at it. =)
