Southbound Union Pacific transfer train passing over the Grand Avenue Underpass. Franklin Park Illinois USA. Early November 2007.

I took this photo on a sunny Autum morning, in early November of 2007. A southbound Union Pacific transfer train is now passing over the recently completed Grand Avenue Underpass in northwest suburban Franklin Park Illinois. The Grand Avenue Underpass was several years in the making, and when completed in 2007, proved to be an effective way to prevent traffic delays caused by the many lenghty transfer freight trains utilizing the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad trackage.
