Northbound Grand Trunk Western intermodal train approaching Chicago's Marquette Park. Chicago Illinois USA. May 1987.

I had taken this photo just south of west 71st Street, in May of 1987. I was just walking north along the GTW right of way, after spending part of an afternoon railfanning at Hayford Junction.
As I was getting closer to Marquette Park on west 71st Street, I heard the distant air horns tooting from an approaching northbound GTW freight train and got My camera ready. This GTW train with two diesels from the Canadian National Railroad in the consist will soon speed past Marquette Park (The trees on the right) and head to the piggyback yard near west 47th Street and south Damen Avenue on Chicago's southside.
