Santa Fe Mc.Cook Illinois depot. (Gone) October 1983.
This is a photograph I had taken in early October of 1983 in near southwest suburban Mc.Cook Illinois USA . I was out railfanning on location with an old High School friend. This depot was located near the crosstrack junction at Mc.Cook Illinois, where the Santa Fe crossed the Indianna Harbor Belt Railroad. This depot was located on a private dirt and gravel service road, now officially "Off Limits" to railfans or unauthorized persons of any kind. This is strictly "Private Property" today, and the police make frequent patrols. I used to visit this once populair railfan location during the 1980's. This depot was torn down shortly after I had taken this photograph.
