Southbound Canadian National Railroad freight train on the Hayford Junction interchange. Chicago Illinois USA. July 2007.

I took this photo after work one late afternoon, in July of 2007. A Canadian National freight train has just left the Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard. The train is now proceeding southbound on the former Grand Trunk Western mainline. This view is looking south toward the crosstracks and interchange at Hayford Junction. Hayford Junction is located on the Southwest side of Chicago at West 75th Street and South Central Park Avenue, in the Ashburn Neighborhood.

To the south of Hayford Jct both the B&O and C&O had yards, now CSX. To deliver the auto parts from Corwith on the ATSF it was a daily trip not through Hayford but Brighton Park Jct, which was then PRR, and south past the old PRR hump yard at 61st Street and finally turning west into each yard.
