In the Spring of 2012, members of REAC as well other students took a trip down to Chicago to tour the EMD Engine Plant, BNSF Intermodal Yard, and the Union Pacific Locomotive Shop. Students were able to see firsthand how engines were built, the logistics behind train movements, and the maintenance needed for the massive locomotives. Unfortunately, we do not have any photos from within the EMD plant, but I hope you enjoy these!
