Last week I had no new pictures, much to the disappointment of one of my biggest fans. However this week I am happy to report that I do. Several in fact.
Fighting Saints fever is even spreading to those who run 1 of the railroads that operates in Dubuque. The Chicago Central Railroad (CC) runs from Chicago to Sioux City. That means that it runs through the Rockford Diocese, the Archdiocese of Dubuque & the Sioux City Diocese. CC is a subsidiary of the Illinois Central (IC), which is owned by Canadian National (CN). Well, it turns out that they wanted to show their support of the team because of how important our area is to them. While none of the locomotives carry the CC paint scheme any more, there are 3 different paint schemes they use that are seen in Dubuque, the IC, CN & Grand Trunk Western (GTW).
Here we have a picture of an Illinois Central locomotive waiting in the BNSF yards for clearance to cross over the Railroad bridge into Dubuque.
Next we have this picture of GTW 6420 working in the CC yards in Dubuque. Since GTW operates in Detroit, I wonder if any of the locomotives there have shown up yet with the Fighting Saints logo.
Finally we have this picture taken in Dubuque of CN 8821. It was taken near the CN office building when the train had stopped to switch crews.
I have yet to have any visible confirmation, but I hear that The Burlington Northern Santa Fe & Canadian Pacific which operates the former Iowa, Chicago & Eastern (ICE) as a part of their Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern Railroad subsidiary have also added the logo to at least some of their locomotives. Hopefully by next week I will have that confirmation & the pictures to share with you.
