EMDX 9010, an Oakway locomotive, pulls its freight under some old, soon-to-be-replaced CB&Q signals, assisted by two other Oakways. The new signals are seen under construction in the background.

Richard Burdick General the signals are not ATSF signals, but were installed by the CB&Q RR when CTC was installed on the Chicago to Aurora racetrack.Some of the signals on the line have been there since the 1940's and have served well over the years.It's a shame to see them go.Good job on the pic! 8/30/2011 2:11:12 PM
Jacob Thom General Thanks for the advice, I will change the description. Glad you liked the picture! 8/30/2011 5:16:03 PM
Jim Dodds General Great shot! I love the signals and how green this photo is! The clouds also add to the photo. Very well done! Seen on the homepage! 1/26/2012 3:32:31 PM
Jacob Thom General They just recently removed those signals, and I'm glad I got the shot when I did. Thanks for the positive comments! 1/26/2012 6:26:17 PM

Bob Trevorah General Cool shot! Good work! 11/26/2015 1:17:32 PM
Tom Beckett General Nicely done. I love the whole scene here-three Oakways, something you are not likely to see again; classic signals and signal bridge; and much as I'm not a fan of cloudy days(too many years in Binghamton) the overcast adds to the photo. I'm glad you got this when you did, too. opportunities for this kind of shot are disappearing with every new PTC signal installation. Home page 05-29-2017 5/30/2017 12:38:32 AM
