Westbound Canadian National freight train heading in to an approaching thunderstorm. North Riverside Illinois USA. September 2006.
I took this photo after work one late afternoon, in September of 2006. The Chicago area was weather, was preparing to make a change for the wet and very stormy. I took this photo looking west toward Des Plaines Avenue, in west suburban North Riverside Illinois. A westbound Canadian National freight train traveling over the former Illinois Central Railroad Iowa Division Mainline, is heading in to a darkening western sky. Heavy rain, thunder and lightning would arrive within the hour.
