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