One of My personal favorites amongst the many lineside railfan photographs I had taken over the years, is this one from January of 1987.
After a heavy all morning lake effect snowstorm had stopped falling on Chicago one early Saturday afternoon back in January of 1987, I ventured out with a camera in hand to Hayford Junction, to capture some working images of "Chicago Winter Railroading" on location.
Seen here just west of the crosstracks at Chicago's Hayford Junction on the southwest side of the city, is an eastbound Belt Railway of Chicago transfer freight train departing the nearby BRC Clearing Yard facility.
