Tracking the Light Extra: Chicago & North Western Farewell-21 years ago today!

On the weekend of April 23, 1995, Howard Ande and I followed Chicago & North Western’s east-west mainline from Chicago to Council Bluffs, Iowa and back making hundreds of images in anticipation of the Union Pacific take over.

I exposed this color slide of a relatively new C&NW GE-built DASH9-44CW near Missouri Valley, Iowa on the evening of April 23, 1995.

Exposed on Fujichrome Provia100 using a Nikormatt FTN with 35mm PC (perspective control—shift lens).
