Before and After

Submitted for your consideration are these two shots of Burlington Junction Railway #1609. Burlington Junction does contract switching in Missouri, Illinois and other places that I'm sure I've forgotten about.

Both of these shots were taken in Quincy Illinois where the BJRY switches former CB&Q/BN trackage in town and south along Gardner Expressway. #1 was on 14 Aug 2004; #2 was on 26 Dec 2014 and shows 1609 wearing the standard system scheme. Kinda nice to hear a non-turbo charged EMD throttle up!
