Canadian National freight train on the interchange at Hawthorne Junction. March 2007.

I took this photo after work one evening in March of 2007. We are looking south from the crosstracks at Hawthorne Junction. A northbound Canadian National freight train, is seen leaving the Belt Railway of Chicago trackage, and heading west on Canadian National -ex Illinois Central rails. This is either a transfer train heading to Hawthorne Yard in Cicero Illinois, or a mainline unit grain train heading for points west on the former, Illinois Central Iowa Division mainline.
