Elgin,Joliet & Eastern Railroad switching local. Cresthill Illinois USA. March 2000.
I had taken this photo of an Elgin,Joliet & Eastern Railroad switching local near the Joliet Illinois area. I was working at the time as a delivery truck driver in the area, and was fortunate enough to take My camera to work that day. At the time of the photograph, The E,J,&,E was painting their road service diesels in a bright orange color scheme, while the yard switchers such as the one seen here were painted in a green color scheme. This elederly EMD SW Series diesel switcher was photographed near Route # 53 and Caton Farm Road in southwest suburban Cresthill Illinois, near the city of Joliet.
