Former Illinois Central diesel locomotives on the head end of a Canadian National freight train. Crawford Yard. Chicago Illinois. June 2007. a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo after work one day, back ion June of 2007.
Two former and yet unrepainted Illinois Central Railroad locomotives, are viewed waiting on a hold order east of the Hawthorne Junction crosstracks at the Chicago city limits.
There was a lot of transfer train activity on the north and south Belt Railway of Chicago tracks at Hawthorne Junction at the time of My visit. Once the activity slowed down, the dispatcher gave the crew of this westbound Canadian National freight train a green block signal. Soon this train proceeded westbound over the Canadian National's former Illinois Central RR Iowa Division Mainline.
