Canadian National covered hopper with Chicago Central reporting marks. Hawthorne Junction. Chicago / Cicero Illinois. June 2008.
Seen here on a southbound Canadian National transfer train at the Chicago city limits, is a Canadian National RR covered hopper with "C C" reporting marks initials for the former Chicago, Central & Pacific Railroad. The Chicago Central was a regional
railroad created in 1985, from the sale of the former Illinois Central Gulf Iowa division mainline. Illinois Central bought the line back in 1996.
