This One is For Marty

If you know anything about Marty Surdyk you know about his passion for photographing trains and grain elevators.

So I thought about him as I captured this scene of Amtrak’s southbound Saluki passing a massive grain elevator complex alongside the former Illinois Central mainline in Arcola, Illinois, that is now owned by Canadian National.

A few years ago I had shown an image during an Akron Railroad Club program of the northbound Saluki passing this same complex.

Marty had liked the photograph and said so. So, Marty, if you’re watching, this one is for you.
