Amtrak EMD yard switchers at work. Chicago Illinois USA. November 1983.
I took this photograph looking south from the West Roosevelt Road overpass bridge, just south of downtown Chicago Illinois. Two old EMD 1950's era SW series yard switchers, are working in Amtrak terminal service, and are heading toward Chicago Union Station. They are more than likely retrieving passenger cars to be taken to the nearby Amtrak coach serving yards.
