Westbound Burlington Northern RR commuter local approaching the La Grange road station. La Grange Illinois USA. June 1985.

Westbound Burlington Northern commuter train. La Grange Illinois. 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.
