Winter Sunset at the Stone Avenue station. La Grange Illinois USA. January 1987.

I took this photo while railfanning the Burlington Northern Railroad in west suburban La Grange Illinois. It was a lenghty and quiet period without any mainline train activity on this late Sunday afternoon in January of 1987, but the setting Winter sun, clear skies and silhouettes captured the magic of this quiet and reflective mood. This view was taken from the south platform looking northwest toward the intersection of Hillgrove and Brainard Avenues. The Telephone poles have long since been removed, and several of the businesses along Hillgrove Avenue seen here have long since came and went as well.
