This week I played Archbishop Jackels & Bishops Nickless & Morlino. Bishop Malloy had the week off.
Next week Bishop Morlino will have the week off.
Things were a little slow because of World Youth Day. Not wanting to distract from what was going on down there & what Papa Francesco was doing my team kept it low key.

Things were pretty uneventful this week.
As I promised last week, if I found evidence that BNSF & Canadian Pacific which run through Dubuque were jumping on the Fighting Saints bandwagon I would share it. Well when I was out getting some new pictures for my Trains album on Facebook I got the confirmation I needed.
The other day when I taking some pictures in the Chicago Central (CN) yards a BNSF coal train pulled in. Here is a picture of 1 of the locomotives.
This picture was taken later that same day in the BNSF yards in E Dubuque, IL.
The other railroad that has a presence in DBQ in a subsidiary of a subsidiary of a subsidiary of Canadian Pacific (CP, the Iowa, Chicago & Eastern (ICE). ICE is a subsidiary of Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern (DME). DME is a subsidiary of the Soo Line. Here is a picture of 1 of their locomotives in the ICE yards.
Here is a picture of a CP locomotive recently taken in the CN yards where it was picking up some cars.
Finally here is a picture of 1 of the ICE locomotives taken recently in the ICE yards here in DBQ.
The latest rumor is that other Railroads are also on board has been confirmed & I will share those pictures next week. All I will say is Fighting Saints fever has gone spread across the USA & Canada & even into Mexico.
