Album Info:I started out the day in Hodgkins along BNSF's Transcon line just east of the UPS facility. Nothing much was going on but a couple switch movements and a road freight that sat in the distance for at least an hour. I then headed over to Hinsdale where the action picked up dramatically on BNSF's Racetrack to Aurora. Also included is a couple shots from the west end of BRC's Clearing Yard on the way home.
