Burlington Northern industrial switching local on South Paulina Avenue. Chicago Illinois USA. November 1983.
I took this photo in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood one overcast morning, in November of 1983. The Burlington Northern Railroad switching local, is busy servicing customers on South Paulina Avenue. Looking south on South Paulina Avenue, we see that the locomotive engineer is preparing to pull a cut of cars off of this railroad spur track siding.
Today, this little industrial branchline railroad, is now the Central Illinois Railroad.
