Digital Live Sound Video: Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad freight train entering the westbound interchange connection. Franklin Park Illinois. June 2008
I photographed this digital live sound video one Summer evening in June of 2008.
We are on location at the east side of northwest suburban Franklin Park Illinois, near the Canadian National ex Wisconsin Central Railroad crosstracks. A local freight train from the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad is viewed leaving the north and southbound mainline, and entering the interchange curve connection to the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road tracks. This train is enroute to the nearby Canadian Pacific Bensenville Yard, near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport.
