Anyone besides me watching the Live Web cam from Rochelle, Ill.?

   This is a live web cam sponsored by Trains Magazine that overviews the crossing at Rochelle, Ill. of the UP main line out of Proviso west and the BNSF line up towards St.Paul from Aurora.  Both of these tracks are double tracks and activity can be up to 100 trains per day. The UP line is the main line west out of Chicago towards Omaha and all points west , northwest and southwest so plenty of rail activity to be seen. There is also an interchange track between the UP and BNSF which isn't apparent until one sees a train moving from one line to the other.

     You can access this web cam via Trains web site--- It is a freebie and I go to it intermittantly to see if any activity is happening. The cam is at a railroad park dedicated to rail fans and afficienados of the rails.
