Westbound Burlington Northern RR commuter local approaching the La Grange road station. La Grange Illinois USA. June 1985.
Remember those classic 1953 vintage EMD E-9 streamlined cab unit passenger diesels that worked on this Chicago to Aurora commuter line until September of 1992?
I most certainly do! And I miss hearing their unique twin engined sound, and seeing their classic and stylish contours.
I photographed this Aurora bound commuter train looking east from La Grange Road near Burlington Avenue in June of 1985. This is a classic and timeless scene of
Chicago rail commuting from years past.
