Former Detroit, Toledo & Ironton Railroad locomotives acquired through merger. The Grand Trunk Western RR Elsdon Yard site. Chicago IL. June 1984.

I took this photo just north of west 51st Street, at the former GTW Elsdon Yard site. Elsdon Yard had closed in October of 1983, but somehow...they were still using the yard office and were staging and fueling locomotives on site until September of 1986. Seen here just north of west 51st Street, are a group of former D,T & I locomotives acquired by the GTW through a merger in 1981. Notice the GT logo initials on the locomotive cab.
