Former Grand Trunk Western EMD roadswitcher at work. The Canadian National RR Crawford Yard. Chicago Illinois USA. Early November 2007.
The daylight hours were becoming noticeably shorter, when I took this photo one evening after work, in early Novembember of 2007. Seen here on Chicago's near southwest side looking west from South Kostner Avenue at approximately West 33rd Street, is a former Grand Trunk Western Railroad EMD roadswitcher acquired through merger by the Canadian National Railroad. This locomotive and crew are busy working the sidings in the former Illinois Central Railroad -Crawford Yard, located just east of the Chicago city limits near Cicero Illinois.
