I was hanging out in Hinsdale, Illinois, on the BNSF Raceway with my camera making photographs of whatever came along.
I was between trains in Chicago and had a few hours to kill. Watching trains on the Raceway is one of my favorite pastimes when connecting between Amtrak trains.
An Aurora-bound Metra train pulled into the station and stopped. I could see on the center track an approaching stack train with a CSX locomotive on the point.
Just as the stack train was reaching the Metra station, Amtrak’s inbound California Zephyr rushed into the picture. It was perfect timing to get a three-way meet.
