Southbound Canadian National freight train with plant life in the foreground. Schiller Park Illinois USA. Late September 2009.
I took this photo one morning during My lunchbreak, in late September of 2009.
We are on location in near northwest suburban Schiller Park Illinois. We are looking west through a chain link fence just west of adjacent Harold Street. It was a pleasant and very mild day, and the ample sunshine and plantlife in the foreground, adds a nice dimension to this photo.
Seen here is a southbound Canadian National heavy transfer freight train, wich had just came to a stop upon arriving at the former Wisconsin Central RR yard. The train is temporarily parked north of the Lawrence Avenue viaduct on a hold order.
