A former Grand Trunk Western locomotive switching a factory siding. Chicago Illinois USA. Febuary 2007.

I took this cold winter evening photo during the deep freeze that Chicago was experiencing, in early Febuary of 2007. We are just east of Hawthorne Junction, on the Canadian National Railroad's former, Illinois Central Iowa Division Mainline. A former GTW diesel acquired through merger, is seen setting out covered hoppers, as the sunslight fades out on a bitterly cold day.
It was 8 above zero farenheight and dropping when I took this photograph near south Kostner Avenue and west 33rd Street on Chicago's southwest side.
