Daily Interchanges with CSX and CN
Title:  Daily Interchanges with CSX and CN
Description:  EFRR 2716 in Phase 1 [Two Tone Red with parabolic curve to nose stripes] paint with IW 7570 in its original IW paint job [Phase 2 will be EFRR inspired] and previously unknown CN Loco #5629, posed outside TQW for website publicity photo. I had often looked at this photo and wondered where the location was and then tonight I realised the tell tale was the corner of the industrial building which has to be TQW warehouse. The track in the foreground of the photo are the tail end of the Hodgson Mill siding. The track with the CN loco on it leads straight in to and through the TQW warehouse. The track with EFRR 2716 and IW 7570 on it is the passing track which runs around the outside of TQW and prevents EFRR having a loading guage restriction point by only running through TQW. I am always on the lookout for more photos of the EFRR so if you live nearby or can visit then please contact EFRR to let them know your coming to arrange a permission slip/liability waiver and please contact me because I would appreciate copies of any photos. Update 11 September 2009. I just received a CD of photos and other information on the EFRR from a contact at Agracel and it shows similar photos to this one from what appears to have been a EFRR Open Day and so I was able to zoom in and find out the number of CN 5629 which must have been loaned to EFRR for the PR event.

2716
Title:  2716
Description:  I found this photo of EFRR 2716 on another website and the interesting thing is that it almost exactly matches another photo I found on a different website. MMMM I wonder what happened there. Anyway it is a great shot of EFRR 2716 in what I am describing as its Phase 2 paint job, whereby the stripes near the nose have been changed to curves from the previous parabolic shapes and Hi Viz safety stripes have been added to the frame sill to comply with Federal Regulations. I will have to find out when that came in to effect.

EFRR 2716 with IW 7570 outside TQW warehouse
Title:  EFRR 2716 with IW 7570 outside TQW warehouse
Description:  I found this photo on the same website I found the duplicate of EFRR 2716 in this Phase 2 paint job. Here we see EFRR 2716 in its current Phase 2 paint job while IW 7570 is in its original IW Phase 1 paint job so we have an interesting transition period shown here. In the future IW 7570 will be given a EFRR inspired paint job [Phase 2 Minus] and then sometime in the two months afterwards it will finally be lettered for Illinois Western again, so completing its Phase 2 paint job to match EFRR 2716.

EFRR 2716 at Start Up
Title:  EFRR 2716 at Start Up
Description:  I found this photo on the same website I found the duplicate of EFRR 2716 in its Phase 2 paint job. Here we see EFRR 2716 in its original Phase 1 EFRR paint job where the stripes form a parabolic curve downwards. Note the white caps to the twin exhaust stacks. Of Major interest is the track under #2716 which is that new that it hasnt been fully ballasted.

EFRR 2716 Dedication Ceremony
Title:  EFRR 2716 Dedication Ceremony
Description:  EFRR 2716 at EFRR Dedecation Ceremony 1999. I found this photo yesterday while researching the web for more information and photos of the now former Krispy Kreme manufacturing and distribution plant located on the EFRR at Effingham. It was contained in an article about the opening of the plant at Siteselection.com and was obviously used by the railroad as an early publicity photo. There is I believe an actual Krispy Kreme Opening Dedication photo as well showing #2716 with a banner on the side of the loco. I have only managed to capture a thumbnail of the photo. I also had my first Krispy Kreme donuts this week, bought from a BP servo in Sth Melbourne. $8.00 for 4 donuts, 2 choc and 2 original. Rip off and bloody tite arse with the choc coating, it was like it was painted on. As per usual if you live near or are visiting Effingham and you can take some photos of the EFRR and the buildings then please contact me. I would really like some photos of the rail side views of the various EFRR customers. Its not easy trying to research and model this railroad from Australia.

EFRR 2716 Two Tone Red with Hi-Viz Yellow
Title:  EFRR 2716 Two Tone Red with Hi-Viz Yellow
Description:  EFRR 2716. Note 2716 is wearing the two tone red scheme with Hi-Viz Yellow safety striping to frame sill and steps. Note that the yellow striping and I think also the yellow feathering behind the radiator have changed to a more rounded finish where previously they curved parabolically to the deck at an angle which almost matched the bracing running down to the bottom of the front steps. There is a similar shot of 2716 outside the TQW warehouse here on this site [search thru Effingham photos] which shows a similar view of 2716 wearing the first EFRR paint scheme of red with yellow stripes but no sill striping. This is the current EFRR scheme and serves as the basis for the paint job on IW 7570. Interestingly the author of this photo on the flickr photo website mentions [12 months ago] that he thinks EFRR is no longer running. Has someone forgotten to tell the folks at EFRR this? If you live local to the EFRR or are visiting and wish to take some photos then please contact EFRR to let them know when you are coming and to obtain a liability waiver/permission slip. You know Bad Apples, 9/11, etc, yada, yada, yada. Again if you do take some photos then please contact me.

EFRR 2716
Title:  EFRR 2716
Description:  This photo of EFRR 2716 is from another contributor to this site, but you never see it unless you check out the all the Effingham photos. I am not claiming ownership of this photo in any way I just wanted to include it so that anyone viewing my album [including myself] can easily see just how much care and attention is lavished upon EFRR 2716 now. It was interesting to be able to search for the MRL 11000 boxcar on this site to see other views of it, so Thank You to those contributors who take the time to photograph and record rolling stock.
