Westbound Canadian Pacific Railroad freight train. Bensenville Illinois USA. August 2006.
Seen here passing through the Metra commuter rail station in northwest suburban Bensenville Illinois, is a westbound Canadian Pacific freight train. The manifest freight run has just left Bensenville Yard and is picking up speed as it leaves the town behind it. Prior to 1990, this was the Soo Line Railroad, wich had bought out the former and very bankrupt Milwaukee Road back in 1985. This line is the former Milwaukee Road mainline.
