A Milwaukee Road remnant in 2007. CP Rail Bensenville Yard.

An unrepainted mid 1970's vintage EMD MP-15DC yard switcher is seen working the car shop tracks at the Canadian Pacific Railroad's Bensenville Yard. The Soo line bought out a very bankrupt Milwaukee Road through a merger in 1985, and later in 1990, the CP Rail bought out the Soo line through a merger too. 22 years later, and they still havn't gotten around to repainting this venerable diesel switcher. I took this photo while working not far from here in Febuary 2007.
