looking east inside Crawford Yard. Chicago Illinois. June 2008. a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo back in June of 2008.
This is the Canadian National Railroad's former Illinois Central Crawford Yard, located at the Chicago city limits near Cicero Illinois.
This quaint and modest little train yard, in years past, was operated by the Illinois Central's own Chicago subsidiary railroad that was known as, The Chicago & Illinois Western.
Crawford Yard, is located just east of the Hawthorne Junction crosstracks, at approximately South Kostner Avenue and West 33rd Street.
