The O Scale Resource September/October 2019 123 Many people take photos of engines and even cars, but most stop at that. I, on the other hand, just love to shoot things that I may want to model in the future. I love to model details and have people say, "Must have made that up… never seen a real railroad do that.". That's when I whip out the picture to show them that indeed the real railroad did. Caution: This tactic does not make many friends :-) Oddity By Dan Dawdy While this image does not look odd, it was at the time. Living in Lisle at the time, it was one of the coldest and snowiest winters in a while. The Chicago yards were clogged with trains. The CN on the right was parked here for three days while the other one for almost two days. That left one track for the BN and Metra to work with. As soon as one of these moved, another took their place. Photo taken in Lisle, IL March 5 th , 1994.
