This train usually runs during the night now, but me and Nictrain35 put up a sucessful chase. The power in charge was long hood forward SD38-2 #157 and ES44AC #509.
Still moving slow after clearing the 407 Lift Bridge, the CBBI now just cleared the diamonds of Joliet Union and the Metra Coach Yard East of it.
I now situated myself along US Route 30 on the West side of New Lenox to catch them appearing behind the trees as they throb up hill.
At a car wash parking lot in New Lenox, I caught it again with time to spare to catch him again. Usually by this point, they're moving too fast to chase.
Over 20 minutes later, the CBBI is now in Mokena passing the Front Street Metra Station.
