Canadian Pacific ailroad train waiting for clearance. Craigin Junction. Chicago Illinois USA. Febuary 2007.

A CP Rail freight train, has no choice but to sit and wait for clearance to proceed from the dispatcher. This scene was photographed by Myself at Craigin Junction, located just east of the brand new Metra Cicero / Grand Avenue commuter rail station on Chicago's northside.

The freight train has left the Belt railway of Chicago Clearing Yard in southwest suburban Bedford Park Illinois USA, and travelled north on BRC trackage to the CP Rail interchange here at Craigin Junction. Once clearance is recieved, the train will proceed west to Bensenville Yard near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, or other points west on the former Milwaukee road.

Nice to see an actual shot of this area. I live right alongside the BRC north/south main and I have always wondered about Cragin, and exactly how the line ends (or begins).
