Burlington Northern Railroad switching local. Chicago Illinois USA. November 1983.

I was on South Paulina Street near Blue Island Avenue in the Pilsen neighborhood, when I had taken this late morning photograph in November of 1983. The Burlington Northern Railroad, was in the process of removing an empty bulkhead flatcar from a lumberyard spur siding.
This particulair section of the Pilsen community was in a large industrial park setting, and was referred to as "The lumber yard district".
