LPW08 passes over a CNW stream engine mural painted on the bridge abutment of Pleasant Hill Rd. The other side of the bridge has the rear of the train painted on it.

The UPY-559 is working job YPW08-08 because the caller built the job wrong. It should be the LPW08-08. This is looking north on the old Dundee Subdivision that went from Elgin IL., Dundee, Carpentersville and Algonquin to Crystal Lake. North of Crystal Lake the line went to McHenry, Ringwood, Richmond, Genoa City, Pell Lake, Lake Geneva and Williams Bay.

Did I say LPW08? Now hold the phone...This should be YBE51 or YBE51X so you say. Here is the rest of the story. I was called at 0735 for LPW08-23. Now LPW08 usually is on duty at Belvidere, IL. and is transported to Crystal Lake, IL. to get engine and cars and works from Crystal Lake to Ringwood, IL. on the UP's McHenry sub. When we got to Crystal Lake, IL. the engine ( UPY-636 ) had issues with the PCS so we were dead in the water. When we got back to Belvidere, IL. the manager ( Rich ) told us to go to Loves Park, IL. so the whole day would not be wasted. Now that is how the crew for LPW08-23 ended up going to Loves Park.

Union Pacific 1360, crewed by Dave Hawley (Engineer) and Steve Brestan, (Conductor) is about to start the day's work on the McHenry sub. According to Hawley, this is the LPW08-04 train with UP 1360 as an ex D&RGW unit and is a GP-40-2.
