Westbound Burlington Northern freight train. Hindsdale Illinois USA. Late October 1989.

I took this photo on a lovely autum Sunday, in late October of 1989. Seen here racing westbound through the west suburban village of Hindsdale Illinois USA, was one of several Burlington Northern Railroad freight trains dispatched with clearance on the 3 track Chicago to Aurora Illinois "Racetrack", as this line was so nicknamed. The commuter trains terminate at the west terminal in Aurora Illinois, while the freight trains continue to points west beyond. Another mainline branches off in Aurora and proceeds northwest to Wisconsin, Minesota, and other states in the pacific northwest region of the United States of America. The BN casccade green color scheme highlights the lovely seasonal autum colors in the greater Chicagoland area.
