Old Santa Fe maintenance of way equipment. Photographed at Mc Cook Junction. Mc Cook Illinois USA. October 1983.
I took this photo on location at Mc Cook Junction, way back in October of 1983.
The Atchinson, Topeka & Santa Fe boxcars and former passenger car, are now
demoted and working their final years in railroad Maintenance of Way Service.
Here they sit just north of the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad crosstracks at
Mc Cook Junction, on a mild October afternoon in 1983. The green highway overpass bridge in the background, is Illinois U.S Route # 171, wich turns into Archer Road
just south of here in Summit Illinois.
