Album Info:BNSF road freight stops to switch a Vemiculite factory at Girard Illinois on July 5. 2006. Two of the engines need to be cut off of the train as the industrial siding is only long enough to hold one engine and one car. This short length of track is the former Illinois Terminal traction main line which was dieselized with SW1200's and GP7's in the early fifties. A connection was made wth the CB&Q in 1968 when the IT abandoned the old traction main line in favor of trackage rights on the IC. The BN installed heavier rail on this trackage, but left the old 100lb switch in service which has the old traction era spring loaded frog.
