Northbound CSX Transportation freight train passing through Alsip Illinois. August 1990.
A hot and hazy day in August of 1990 is spent here in Southwest Suburban Alsip Illinois. We are on Kostner Avenue just south of 119th Street. A fast northbound CSX Transportation freight train, is seen speeding along the Indianna Harbor Belt railroad mainline. Alsip Illinois in Chicago's southwest suburbs was a frequent photography location for Me in the late 1980's and early 90's. It was and stil is a great location to shoot railfan photographs. I will be returning there soon to do some updated railfanning.
