Westbound Santa Fe intermodal train. Forest View Illinois USA. Early December 1990.

I took this photo on top of the railroad embankment near South Harlem Avenue / U.S Route # 43 in suburban Forest View Illinois. I was very cautious when I went to this location to obtain this photo, and haven't attempted it since.
A westbound Atchinson ,Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad intermodal piggyback train, is seen with locomotives painted in the 1989 Passenger Warbonnet "Revival" scheme reintroduced by the A,T & S,F the previous year. It made a lovely sight glimmering in the late day sunshine, on a mild early December afternoon in 1990.
