I photographed this northbound Canadian National transfer train one morning in June of 2007. Seen here at the Grand Avenue underpass in northwest suburban Franklin Park Illinois, is the CN freight train waiting on a hold order for clearance from the dispatcher. The CN train is traveling over the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad line. Just north of here is the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road crosstracks and interchange.

I have heard that the railroad and the village of Franklin Park, is supposed to formally dedicate the completed overpass on Labor day weekend this year. Word has it that they are going to have preserved Canadian Pacific 4-6-4 steam locomotive # 2816 at the official ribbon cutting ceremony.
