Westbound Canadian National Railroad freight train. North Riverside Illinois USA. May 2006.
I took this photograph on a beautiful sunny morning in May of 2006. A slow moving westbound Canadian National train is moving past the railroad grade crossing on Des Plaines Avenue just north of 26th Street. This railroad line prior to the year 2000, was the former Illinois Central Railroad. This was their Iowa Division Mainline, wich ran between Chicago Illinois and Waterloo Iowa.
