A solid train of Tri Leval Auto Rack freight cars, are seen heading westbound under the North Central Avenue overpass bridge at the Metra Hanson Park flagstop depot. Numerous transfer freight trains from the Canadian Pacific , Norfolk Southern, and the Iowa, Chicago & Eastern Railroad pass through this area daily on their crosstown journey to and from the Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard near Midway airport.
This is the former Milwaukee Road mainline on the northside of the city of Chicago Illinois.
