Westbound Canadian Pacific freight train. River Grove Illinois USA. August 2007.

Westbound Canadian Pacific freight train crossing Thatcher Avenue. River Grove Illinois. August 2007.

I took this photo one hot summer afternoon in August of 2007. A slow moving westbound Canadian Pacific freight train, is seen at the Thatcher Avenue railroad crossing in near northwest suburban River Grove Illinois. Notice the "Soo" reporting marks on the side of the covered hopper car. The Canadian Pacific Railroad acquired the Soo Line in a 1990 merger.
