Canadian National switching in the rain. Forest Park Illinois USA. August, 2006.

I took this unique photo after work, on a rainy evening in August of 2006. In the background just north of Cermak Road, is the Canadian National Railroad switching local, idling between switching moves on an industrial railroad spur branchline. This single track branchline with spur sidings, is located along the east side of Woodlawn Cemetery in west suburban Forest Park Illinois. This is a former Illinois Central owned piece of trackage that conmnects to the former Illinois Central Iowa Division Mainline in North Riverside Illinois.
