Eastbound BNSF freight train at Brookfield Illinois. June 2000
An eastbound Burlington Northern Santa Fe freight train is seen passing the Brookfield Metra commuter station. This photograph was taken along the Northside of the tracks along Brookfield Avenue. This is just east of Prairie Avenue. The mismatched color schemes are "Proof" that this is a merged railroad. The lead diesel locomotive was just recently painted in the "New" color scheme, while the second locomotive is still in Santa Fe colors and markings.
