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 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.

IW 7570 on Hodgson Mill Siding
Title:  IW 7570 on Hodgson Mill Siding
Description:  Found this on another website, no idea which one. This photo shows the rail side of Hodgson Mill and I am not sure if IW 7570 is in Phase 2 Minus or full Phase 2 paint work. Good details of the back of the mill and also if you look between the two buildings you can see the aggregate pile at Mid-Illinois Concrete another EFRR customer.

IW 7570 on Hodgson Mill Siding just near TQW
Title:  IW 7570 on Hodgson Mill Siding just near TQW
Description:  Not sure exactly which website I found this photo on but it is a nice shot of IW 7570 in what I am calling its Phase 1 paint job, which despite some signs of weathering sure looks one hell of a lot better than its previous Conrail paint job. Just how bad it looked when they found it on the dead line I hate to think but the crew from IW brought her back from the dead to live again and soon she will be painted in her EFRR inspired Phase 2 Minus paint job, then sometime in the following two months she will receive her Illinois Western lettering again, completing her Phase 2 paint job. If you look to the rear end of 7570 you will see a UP auto car which is on the CSXT/CN interchange tracks barely 100 feet away which the EFRR parallels.

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..

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?

Description:  Guys from the W. Kentucky NRHS who took some of these photos of IW 7570 used here and who are also providing a sense of scale as to the size of 7570 parked on the Hodgson Mill Siding.

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.
