Album Info:This album starts out with a shot at the west end of BRC's Clearing Yard as both the BRC and IHB in and around Clearing were dead. I headed to Lavergne Station in Berwyn where the action definitely picked up. It was slow for the first hour but after about 1:45pm trains were going past the station two at a time and for a brief moment all three tracks were occupied. The weather was gorgeous and my only regret is that later in the afternoon it got cloudy and with darkness coming much sooner nowadays, conditions weren't that ideal for pictures. All pics in this album were taken between 11:30am and 3:30pm CST.
