Westbound Canadian National freight train with former Illinois Central locomotives. Hawthorne Junction. Chicago / Cicero Illinois USA. June 2007.

A westbound Canadian National freight train with two former Illinois Central EMD roadswitchers on the head end, is seen passing through Hawthorne Junction and entering west suburban Cicero Illinois at the Chicago city limits.

The train is passing over the north and south Belt Railway of Chicago crosstracks, out of view to the right of the photo.

The hill in the background, is the site of the abandoned and currently redeveloping Bel Air Drive In Movie Theatre near West 31st Street and South Cicero Avenue. It was a hot day.
