The 73rd Avenue railroad crossing. Elmwood Park Illinois USA. May 2009.
I took this photo after work one evening in May of 2009. One of My all time favorite locations to take railroad photos or videos in near northwest suburban Elmwood Park Illinois, is the 73rd Avenue railroad crossing, just south of Grand Avenue. This is a very busy railroad mainline in the Greater Chicagoland Area. There are many daily local and express Metra commuter trains, as well as many freight trains here on the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road mainline.
