I took this photo one lovely Autum evening, back in October of 2008.
We are on location at Hawthorne Junction, at the Chicago city limits
adjacent to west suburban Cicero Illinois. A southbound Canadian National transfer freight train, is viewed departing from the former Illinois Central Railroad's Crawford Yard at Cicero Illinois.
The slow moving freight train, is entering the Belt Railway of Chicago interchange connection at Hawthorne Junction. The train is now preparing to cross over a single crosstracked spur siding lead on the former Illinois Central subsidiary switching railroad, Chicago & Illinois Western.
