Westbound speeding empty unit coal train racing through Brookfield. Brookfield Illinois USA. December 2006.

Westbound BNSF Railway empty unit coal train passing underneath the Congress Park overhead block signal bridge at the Prairie Avenue railroad crossing. Brookfield Illinois. December 2006.

It was a busy morning in December of 2006 at the Prarie Avenue railroad crossing
in west suburban Brookfield Illinois, as a steady stream of freight trains, as
well as Metra commuter runs passed My camera lens on that mild 50 degree morning.
Seen here is a westbound BNSF Railway empty unit coal train leaving Chicago, and
heading westbound at speed to the coal mines in the State of Wyoming.
