Northbound Chicago & NorthWestern RR freight train passing Argo Tower. (gone) December 1990.

I took this photo on a mild day in early December of 1990.

A northbound Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad transfer freight train, is viewed passing through Argo Junction in southwest suburban Summit Illinois. Argo Tower was in it's final years of service here, and would be closed in the year of 1993. It was demolished in stages between 1993 and 1995.

The Chicago & NorthWestern train, is viewed traveling northbound over the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad. The train is crossing over the former Gulf, Mobile & Ohio crosstracks at the junction.
