Westbound Canadian Pacific freight train leaving Bensenville Illinois USA. August 2006.
I photographed this westbound Canadian Pacific freight train leaving the former Milwaukee Road Bensenville Yard, on a Hot August Day in 2006. This EMD Roadswitcher is painted in Canadian Pacific Railroads "New Image" color scheme. The locomotives air horns are blowing as the train is passing the Bensenville Metra station alongside Main Street. Bensenville Illinois, located close to Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, is a very active place to enjoy plenty of railfan activity. Just west of here along Main Street near the Intersection of Church Road, is an old 0-6-0 Steam locomotive switcher built in 1922, on display in Veterans Park.
