Chicago RTA locomotives backing in to La Salle Street Station. Chicago Illinois. Nov 1983.

This is one of the earliest railfan photographs I had taken.

We are looking north from the West Roosevelt Road overpass bridge south of downtown Chicago, during an overcast November morning in 1983.

Two pre Metra Chicago RTA EMD F-40PH commuter service locomotives, are viewed backing in to La Salle Street station.
There has been much construction here during the 1990's, as
the area to the right of the locomotives is the site of a large Target store today.
