Good photo times:  Anytime but expect lulls around the Chicago rush hour as freights can get backed up all the way to De Kalb waiting for the commuter traffic to clear.

Tracks to the north to Sycamore are abandoned and torn out.

UP main crosses through a 4-way intersection in the middle of downtown at a 45 degree angle.

Old coaling tower (if its still standing) is located just east of the wye.
