Our Favorite Christmas Trains, Part I

Welcome to the Christmas Season! We'll start sharing a few of our favorite winter scenes, and this one comes to us from December of 2019 at the Illinois Railway Museum. At left, former Burlington Northern "Executive" E9A BN-3 waits with a train for former Metra bi-level gallery cars, including a pair built by the St. Louis Car Company for the Chicago & North Western Railway, which began the era of these iconic commuter cars.

At right is a former C&NW SD40-2, just steps away from one of the lines she plied during her career with one of Chicago's best-known railroads. Photo Credit: Phil Bell
