Chicago & Northwestern Railroad coal train at Buda, IL

Chicago & Northwestern Railroad coal train at Buda, IL

Stormy weather had moved through the area and the sun began to break out of the clouds when we caught sight of a train. We were following the branch line that runs south from Nelson to St. Louis. Engines 6854 and 6411 are about 60 miles south of Nelson with the Black Buttes to Powerton unit coal train near Buda, IL on June 13, 1981. The trains from Black Buttes to Powerton and Havana ran about ten times a week in 1983. Disk 79
