Locomotives being serviced. The Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard locomotive shop. Bedford Park Illinois USA.

I took this photo after work one day. This is the very busy Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard located in southwest suburban Bedford Park Illinois. Just immediately north of the large hump yard embankment, is the BRC locomotive terminal. Clearing Yard is a major railroad freight hub operation in the greater Chicagoland area. Many transfer trains going to and from Clearing Yard feature motive power from other railroads interchanging with the Belt Railway of Chicago. Seem here are locomotives from the Canadian National and the Union Pacific recieving some much needed mechanical attention.
