Northbound Canadian Pacific transfer train waiting on a hold order. Chicago Illinois USA. July 2007.

I took this photo on a rainy afternoon after work, in July of 2007. Seen here on the West Chicago Avenue underpass viaduct, is a northbound CP Rail transfer train on the Belt Railway of Chicago north/ south -trunk line. Cragin Junction approximately one mile to the north, is currntly tied up with numerous east and west Metra rush hour commuter trains, and it appears that there is another freight train ahead of this one , out of view on the same track. The Belt Railway of Chicago sees numerous transfer freight trains at this location, and numerous railroad traffic jams.
