Conrail EMD GP30 diesel locomotive. Burlington Northern Railroad Clyde Yard Engine Terminal. Cicero Illinois USA. November 1987.

I took this photograph looking through the entrance driveway of the BN Clyde Yard
locomotive servicing terminal. On this sunny and somewhat mild afternoon in November of 1987, an early 1960's vintage EMD GP 30 diesel locomotive in Conrail markings is awaiting some
much needed care. At the time of this photo, the people at Conrail were phasing this model and several other somewhat elderly and surplus diesel locomotives out from their roster. This locomotive was proboubly rolling out it's last servicable miles at the time.
