    Guess the Railroad #2

    Here it is....

    Another old line...



    with lots of industry in the cities along its routes...



    and wide open plains between them...



    calling this place home.

    Anyone want to adopt a dog?

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Looks like either the IC, or a long shot ... the Chicago, South Shore and South Bend; I think they had some steam propulsion, too.

    I wanted to give it some time for more replies, but... yes, it is the Illinois Central. Was it the last picture that gave it away?

    Awww...I missed all the fun again.

    btw - if you want to get all technical, it's not the IC anymore - it's CN (Canadian National).
