Craigin Junction. Chicago Illinois USA. March 2007.

I took this photo from the north platform of the Metra Cicero / Grand Avenue commuter rail station on Chicago's northside. Seen here just east of the platforms on north Cicero Avenue, is the much fabled Craigin Junction. This is the north terminal and interchange for the Belt Railway of Chicago's north /south line. A freight train with locomotives from both the BNSF Railway, and the Canadian National Railroad, are seen waiting for clearance on the BRC interchange track with the Canadian Pacific Railroad, while a Metra maintenance crew goes about there workday business.
