View of tracks from the La Grange Road station. June 1986.

Hello everybody!
Once again, welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page. Today we will explore some different mainline and branchline railroad lines both "In" and "Around" the City of Chicago Illinois as it was during the Mid 1980's. Railfanning Chicago back then really had a "Lot" going for it in some places. Other places however, were not so lucky. Some of the things photographed on todays edition, have unfortunately since "Vanished". So please fellow railfans...'Don't make My mistakes"..Never take any favorite train viewing location for granted. Progress and real estate values have a way of "Sneeking Up" on You when you may least expect it. Todays industrial branchline, could easily become tommorows Bicycle path -Ciy Park -or Housing development.

Thank You.
