CB&Q #9911-A and The Nebraska Zephyr in Downtown Chicago
CB&Q E5-A #9911 pulls a special, two day excursion out of Chicago Union Station to run on BNSF Railway's Aurora Subdivision. Saturday (9/22/2012) was particularly cold. After waiting a half hour in the wind and rain, train #11 slowly departed with her shining mars light. As soon as she appeared, the rain ceased and the sun barely popped out of the clouds, making for the ideal shot! However, due to the high winds, my footage was rather shaky. Thankfully, with the help of YouTube's video enhancer, I was able to stabilize the footage. More footage of the BNSF's Aurora Subdivision and Norfolk Southern's Chicago Line to come.
