Auto rack cars on the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad. Bridgeview Illinois USA. April 2008.

I topok this photo on a cloudy afternoon in southwest suburban Bridgeview Illinois. A unit train of auto rack cars, is seen waiting on a hold order just below the 79th Street overpass bridge. The Indiana Harbor Belt is a busy Chicagoland railroad with many transfer and manifest trains passing through southwest suburban Bridgeview Illinois. Bridgeview is a major junction point on the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad, as there is an interchange junction to the Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard , and the IHB's own Argo Yard in Summit Illinois just north of West 71st Street near the "New "Toyota Park stadium.
