IRM's Nebraska Zephyr on BNSF today?

Postby orangeline » Sat Sep 22, 2012 9:50 am

At about 9:20 this morning I happened to be stopped at a red light next to the La Grange Road Metra-BNSF/Amtrak station. The gates were down indicating a train was approaching. I figured it'd likely be a Metra going downtown or to Aurora or maybe a freight. Imagine my astonishment to hear an old-style deep monotone air horn announcing a charging westbound bright silver E unit pulling articulated cars bearing the name Nebraska Zephyr! Was that IRM's E-5 pulling the train? For a 70-something year old, she seemed to be having an easy time of it!
"Welcome aboard Orange Line run 711. Travel time to downtown is 25 minutes. Next stop will be Pulaski."
