Northbound CP Rail transfer train. Chicago Illinois USA. April 2005.

I took this photo on a sunny morning in early April of 2005. A northbound Canadian Pacific transfer train traveling over the Belt Railway of Chicago's north and south trunk line, is waiting on a hold order at Craigin Junction approximately one Mile north of here on Chicago's west side.

It is at this location at the corner of West Kinzie Street and North Kenton Avenue, that the Belt Railway of Chicago passes over the Metra / Union Pacific west line. The Union Pacific line here was formerly the Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad. The building in the background, is the abandoned Brach's Candy Factory in Chicago's Austin neighborhood. This is a busy location.
