GARY INDIANA WORST LOOKING HOODS

BNSF Mendota sub action w/ AMTK 184 plus Mendota Union Depot Museum Mendota, IL 10/28/17
I decided to take my girlfriend up to Mendota and show her the Union Depot Museum there and hopefully see a couple trains on the BNSF Mendota sub. Right as we got there a IC SD70 was leading a mixed manifest towards Galesburg, we had just missed it. I wasn't to upset because I ended up getting two other freights and the eastbound Amtrak California Zephyr led by Phase IV unit 184. The museum was a lot of fun and had a great model layout showcasing Mendota when three lines came through: the CB&Q (then BN now BNSF), Milwaukee Road, and Illinois Central. There are three cars on display sitting on a spur that was part of the Illinosi Central plus a steam engine and caboose. I will have more descriptive details once I get to the museum portion of the video. Enjoy and don't forget to comment and subscribe.
0:00 A eastbound BNSF mixed manifest led by BNSF 7960 (ES44C4 built 2015) and 7591 (ES44DC built 8/2007), passes through Mendota, IL.
2:20 A westbound BNSF mixed manifest led by BNSF 7863 (ES44DC built 4/2010), 7675 (H2 paint ES44DC built 3/2005), and CSX 7827 (C40-8W built 11/1992), passes through Mendota, IL.
5:00 The eastbound Amtrak California Zephyr led by AMTK 184 (Phase IV heritage P42DC built 6/2001) and 161 (P42DC built 5/2001), passes through Mendota, IL on it's way to Chicago from the Bay Area and Denver.
5:48 A ex Northern Pacific/BN caboose sitting in the Mendota Civic Center Park. The markings have been painted over and the windows boarded up.
Now off to the Mendota Union Depot Museum. The museum is housed inside what's left of the massive Mendota depot along with the Amtrak station. There were three railroads at one point the CB&Q along with the Illinois Central and Milwaukee Road. The museums rolling stock sit on a very short remaining segment of the Illinois Central.
6:20 The massive model railroad layout that takes up a big part of the museum with model trains/cars representing the three railroads and a layout of Mendota including the depot at its heyday. When looking at the depot from the track side the lower portion on the right is what's left of it and where the museum currently sits. The water tower was taken down a couple months ago. I loved the route of the zephys scheme on some of the engines. The town is sure not dead but it's not the same as it was when the other two railroads were there. Also a view of a model of a zephyr train. There's plenty of other models there including the steam engine outside.
10:10 Inside a 1938 Milwaukee Road Combine car which was for carrying passengers from smaller towns and they were attached to freight trains and had limited amenities compared to full passenger cars.
10:41 A 1949 Southern Pacific Golden State Limited diner car currently being restored though the dining area is restored just needs some more work outside the kitchen the outside is done. Quite neat with the bar. The cars were shared between Southern Pacific and Rock Island.
11:21 A recently acquired Illinois Central mail car which is nicely restored. It used to be in Paxton, IL as part of the Illinois Central historical society though they didn't have the funds to keep it up so they donated it to the museum.
11:47 A outside view of the cars in order from above
12:10 A CB&Q wooden caboose built in 1911 which is nicely restored inside and out.
13:13 The CB&Q steam engine 4978 (BLW 2-8-2 built 9/1923) also nicely restored complete with a working bell and you can climb up to the cab
14:50 BNSF 2874 (ex SP and BN rebuilt EMD GP39M built 9/1965) and 1500 (ex-GN Rebuilt EMD GP28M built 4/1957) sitting in the yard
Union Pacific Bailey Yard
Union Pacific’s Bailey Yard in North Platte, Neb., is the largest
railroad classification yard in the world. Named in honor of
former Union Pacific President Edd H. Bailey, the massive yard
covers 2,850 acres, reaching a total length of eight miles. The
yard is located in the midst of key east-west and north-south
corridors, making it a critical component of Union Pacific’s rail
Bailey Yard has 17 receiving and 16 departure tracks handling
14,000 rail cars every 24 hours. Of those, about 3,000 cars are
sorted daily in the yard’s eastward and westward yards,
nicknamed hump yards. Using a mound cresting 34 feet for
eastbound trains and 20 feet for those heading west, the hump
yards allow four cars a minute to roll gently into any of 114
bowl tracks. Here they become part of trains headed for
destinations in the East, West and Gulf Coasts of America, as
well as the Canadian and Mexican borders. An average of 139
trains per day, comprised of raw and finished goods, such as
automobiles, coal, grain, corn, sugar, chemicals, steel and
consumer goods, including electronics, apparel and other retail
products, are handled at Bailey Yard.
To keep America moving, train operations and repair shops at
Bailey Yard are open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The
fueling and service center processes more than 9,000
locomotives each month, using technology like overhead cranes
and elevated work bays to maintain fluid operations.
On-site Car Repair
The on-site car repair facility annually replaces 10,000 pairs of
wheels, many identified through an in-motion defect detector
using ultrasound technology to inspect the wheel. This detector
was developed by Union Pacific and is the only one in the world.
Some wheel repairs even take place without the rail car ever
leaving the track, minimizing down time.
Union Pacific’s annual capital investments continue to enhance
operational capabilities at Bailey Yard, ensuring safe, reliable
and environmentally friendly transportation.

Driving Downtown - Chicago USA
Michigan Avenue is a major north-south street in Chicago which runs at 100 east on the Chicago grid. The northern end of the street is at Lake Shore Drive on the shore of Lake Michigan in the Gold Coast Historic District. The street's southern terminus is at Sibley Boulevard in the southern suburb of Harvey, though like many Chicago streets it exists in several disjointed segments.
As the home of the Chicago Water Tower, the Art Institute of Chicago, Millennium Park, and the high-end shopping on the Magnificent Mile, it is a street well known to Chicago natives as well as tourists to the city. Michigan Avenue also is the main commercial street of Streeterville. It includes all of the Historic Michigan Boulevard District and most of the Michigan–Wacker Historic District, including the scenic urban space anchored by the Michigan Avenue Bridge.
North Michigan Avenue & The Magnificent Mile
Michigan Avenue originally ended at the Chicago River, and what is now Michigan Avenue north of the river was originally named Pine Street, after scattered pine trees originally found in its vicinity. As early as 1891 plans were proposed to extend Michigan Avenue north across the river. An early plan called for a tunnel to link Michigan Avenue south of the river with Pine Street, and in 1903 an editorial in the Chicago Tribune proposed a new Bascule bridge across the river at Michigan Avenue.
This plan was further elaborated upon in Daniel Burnham's 1909 Plan of Chicago, and in 1911 a plan was selected that included the widening of Michigan Avenue from Randolph Street to the river, replacing the Rush Street bridge with a new bridge at Michigan Avenue and the construction of a double-decked boulevard along Pine Street as far as Ohio Street. When the Michigan Avenue bridge was completed, Pine Street was renamed Michigan Avenue. At its north end it merges into Lake Shore Drive near the Drake Hotel.
Today, the area north of the Chicago River is referred to as the Magnificent Mile, or sometimes simply the Mag Mile. It contains a mixture of upscale department stores, restaurants, high-end retailers, office buildings and hotels, and caters primarily to tourists and the affluent. The area also has a high concentration of the city's major media firms, and advertising agencies, including the Chicago Tribune newspaper.
It is the home of Chicago's famous Water Tower landmark, Water Tower Park with its historic clock, as well as the eight-level Water Tower Placeshopping center which grew up next door to, and overshadowed, the comparatively diminutive landmark. North of the shopping center can be found the famous John Hancock Center, the art deco Palmolive Building (also known as the Playboy Building) and the lavish Drake Hotel.The entire mile is noted for its spectacular Christmas displays. At the northern edge of this district can be found the One Magnificent Mile building; Chicago Landmark East Lake Shore Drive District, an extremely expensive and exclusive one-block area of real estate running east from North Michigan Ave. and facing directly onto to Lake Michigan; and the on-ramp to northbound Lake Shore Drive.
The Magnificent Mile, sometimes referred to as The Mag Mile, is an upscale section of Chicago'sMichigan Avenue, running from the Chicago River to Oak Street in the Near North Side. The district is located adjacent to downtown, and one block east of Rush Street. The Magnificent Mile serves as the main thoroughfare between Chicago's Loop business district and its Gold Coast. It is the western boundary of the Streeterville neighborhood.
Real estate developer Arthur Rubloff of Rubloff Company gave the district its nickname in the 1940s.Currently Chicago's largest shopping district, various mid-range and high-end shops line this section of the street; approximately 3,100,000 square feet (290,000 m2) are occupied by retail, restaurants, museums and hotels.
Several of the tallest buildings in the United States, such as the John Hancock Center and the Trump International Hotel and Tower, lie in the district. Landmarks along the Magnificent Mile include Wrigley Building, Tribune Tower, the Chicago Water Tower, and the Allerton Hotel.
