Whistle Post stationary railroad train signal. Elmwood Park Illinois USA. May 2009.
I took this photo after work one evening in May of 2009. The large reflective "W" on this particular sign post, tells the locomotive engineer to blow the whistle for an upcoming railroad crossing. This one was photographed just east of the 73rd Avenue railroad crossing in near northwest suburban Elmwood Park Illinois. It is located along the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road mainline.
