Northbound Iowa, Chicago & Eastern RR transfer train. Hawthorne Junction. Chicago Illinois USA. January 2007.

I took this photo on a bitterly cold and windy Chicago winter morning, in January of 2007. A northbound Iowa, Chicago & Eastern transfer train has just left the Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard in Bedford Park Illinois, and is now northbound to the former Milwaukee Road Cragin Junction at Grand and Cicero Avenues on Chicago's northside. From there it will proceed west enroute to Savanna Illinois. The train is approaching the crosstracks at Hawthorne Junction at the Chicago City Limits near Cicero.
