Former Grand Trunk western locomotive spotting cars on an industrial siding. Chicago Illinois. February 2007.

I took this photo one evening after work around sunset, in February of 2010.

Chicago was experiencing a very dangerous and bitterly cold deep freeze condition at the time of this photo. With night time lows below the zero mark, and daytime high temperatures not much better....water main pipes were actually bursting below the city streets of Chicago at several locations.

It was actually 8 degrees above zero farenheight with a sharp wind blowing out of the west when I had taken this photo. The outside temperatures were falling fast as night was approaching.

Yes. I froze taking this photo....but it was actually worth the effort.
