Empty Ethanol Train on the TP&W!

Got a heads up from more than one source that a TP&W westbound led by 3442-3443-5015 was making its way west through East Central Illinois Saturday afternoon.

I decided to intercept, and found the train waiting at Chenoa for the passage of a southbound Union Pacific intermodal train.

Train was untypically short, just 48 cars, including buffers at each end. Scenes are just west of Chenoa, at Gridley, between El Paso and Secor, just west of Secor, just east of Eureka, at Cruger, Washington and the Farmdale Trestle shortly before arriving the East Peoria Yard.
