Speeding along on the Chicago, South Shore & Southbend Railroad. Somewhere east of Gary Indiana. August 1984.

I took this photo looking out of the front door window, next to the motormans cab. I was traveling with a group of railfans, from the Railroad Club of Chicago, on a one day trip to the Hesston Steam Museum. Our trip began at Chicago's Randolph Street Station, and rode to Michigan City Indiana. From here, our group boarded two air conditioned motor coaches, and headed to nearby Hesston Indiana. Our train was traveling close to 75 miles an hour on the single track mainline east of Gary Indiana.
