Eastbound Canadian Pacific transfer train. Elmwood Park Illinois USA. November 2006.

A busy railroad mainline to photograph mainline train activity in the greater Chicagoland area, is the Canadian Pacific in near northwest suburban Elmwood Park Illinois at the Chicago city limits. This is the former Milwaukee Road mainline wich sees Metra commuter trains between Chicago and Elgin Illinois, as well as Metra's Northern Central commuter trains between Chicago and Antioch Illinois. The Northern Central commuter service trains pass through here, interchange onto the former Soo Line in nearby Franklin Park Illinois, and travel to and from Antioch. There are many freight trains on this line daily as well.
