Westbound Atchinson,Topeka & Santa Fe piggyback train. Forest View Illinois USA. December 1990.

I took this photo on top of the former A,T & S,F mainline embankment in west suburban Forest View Illinois near the village of Stickney. A freshly painted lash up of Santa Fe locmotives in the Super Chief passenger revival scheme introduced in 1989, are speeding westbound with an Intermodal or "Piggyback" train. In 1995, the Burlington Northern, and the Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe would merge and become todays BNSF Railway.
