Caption: “The train is coming, but it’s not the one these passengers are hoping to see. However, it is the one we want, isn’t it? Westbound Rock Island U28B 257 is kicking up the dust as an F unit lends a hand. Looks like there must be a railfan in the crowd as the gentleman in the suit gives a wave to the crew.”
