I took this photo one afternoon, in January of 1987.
After an all morning lake effect snowstorm had finaly stopped falling, I decided to head out to Hayford Junction with My camera in hand. I captured some very memorable images of Chicago winter railroading that day.
Seen here is an eastbound Belt Railway of Chicago transfer freight train departing Clearing Yard, and approaching Hayford Junction at West 75th Street and South St. Louis Avenue in Chicago's Ashburn neighborhood.
