Westbound Santa Fe intermodal train behind "New" locomotives. Forest View Illinois. December 1990.

I took this photo on a mild sunny day in December of 1990, in Forest View Illinois near the village of Stickney.
This intermodal train was being pulled by "New" locomotives in the red and silver "Warbonnet" Revival color scheme. In the year of 1989, the Atchinson,Topeka & Santa Fe had decided to bring back the pre 1971 passenger train color scheme worn
by pre Amtrak trains like the Super Chief and the El Capitain. I took this photo on the embankment that passes over south Harlem Avenue.
