DRS Rail Services EMD Switcher returning to the engine storage yard. Chicago Illinois USA. January 2007.

I took this photo on an overcast January morning in 2007. A rebuilt 1st Generation ( 1950's era) EMD SW series yard switcher working for DRS Rail Services, is seen returning from the mornings industrial switching local assignment. This scene was photographed on West 22nd Street / Cermak Road just east of South Ashland Avenue in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood. The locomotive is returning to the makeshift engine storage yard at Cermak Road and Canalport Street behind a padlocked chain link fence.
