Westbound Burlington Northern Railroad freight train at La Grange Illinois. June 1986.
A set of EMD GP-50 diesel locomotives, wearing an experimental "Tiger Stripe" color scheme, is seen pulling an Intermodal train through La Grange Illinois in June of 1986. We are looking east from the south plattform, at the La Grange Illinois commuter train station. This depot is located in western suburban La Grange Illinois on Route #12 / #45 La Grange Road. The tiger stripe scheme was only applied on the Burlington Northern's GP-50's, making them easy to spot.
