I took this late morning photo, on a cold morning in early January of 2007. Heading north on the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad line, is a Union Pacific unit train of tri leval auto racks. The train is seen passing over the crosstracks of the BNSF Railway. Mc Cook Junction is located on a service road in an isolated industrial area between the suburban towns of Summit and Lyons Illinois.
Heavy snows would pelt Chicago within the next two weeks.
