IW 7570
Title:  IW 7570
Description:  IW 7570 screen capture from recently updated Illinois Western website home page. The photo was taken on the EFRR tracks at Effingham, IL, where 7570 is based. Date is estimated. The clues are the unique powerline crossarms in the back ground and the jointed rails in the foreground and under 7570. 7570 is wearing its phase 2 paint job inspired by the phase 2 paint job on EFRR 2716. Note 7570 has snow plows to both front and rear which I think is very unusual.

Krispy Kreme
Title:  Krispy Kreme
Description:  Chocolate coloured building at left has two run through rail tracks to the left just out of shot. You can see one of the bump posts. The building was used for unloading railcars and trucks of ingedients for piping in to those storage tanks. I am unsure if they also used the building to load boxcars with pallets of store shipments to the California distribution warehouse.

IW 7570 on Hodgson Mill Siding just near TQW
Title:  IW 7570 on Hodgson Mill Siding just near TQW
Description:  IW 7570 in Phase 1 paint. Now can anyone tell me just how common or uncommon it is for a loco to be fitted with snow plows front and rear?

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.

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 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.

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.

IW 7570 back in its unloved Conrail days
Title:  IW 7570 back in its unloved Conrail days
Description:  This photo of 7570 is from another contributor to this site, but you never see it unless you check out the frame number search or CR 7570 search. 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 IW 7570 now that it is working for the EFRR.

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.

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 Map
Title:  EFRR Map
Description:  This map from a switching puzzle website is what started me on my quest to learn more about the EFRR as it was described as the closest real life railroad to the TIMESAVER Switching Puzzle. I mean how many railroads, let alone a shortline can legitimately claim to have a doughnut factory [distribution facility] located on site and served by rail?? If you live near or can visit the EFRR then please take some more photos particularly of the buildings.

IW 7570 on EFRR at TQW
Title:  IW 7570 on EFRR at TQW
Description:  Illinois Western GP10 #7570 seen on the EFRR Shortline, parked on the siding leading in to the Total Quality Warehouse [TQW owned by Agracel who also own IW and EFRR] unloading facility. Of interest are the unique spoting features provided by the air vent shields on the walls which enabled me to positively identify the TQW building when looking towards it from the CN yard and CN/EFRR interchange tracks. This photo was supplied to me by Charlie Barenfanger, CEO of the EFRR and IW after an email contact. Charles also provided me with details of the history of IW 7570. If you live near or can visit the EFRR then please take some more photos particularly of the buildings..
