The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. Early March 2011. a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo, during a recent operating session at The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
My Athearn EMD GP 35 roadswitcher wearing the 1960's era Santa Fe color scheme, is viewed pulling a short transfer train of wooden Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad reefer cars.
I imagined that this was a ficticious Atchinson, Topeka & santa Fe Railroad transfer train, traveling from the Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad's Proviso Yard in Bellwood Illinois, to the Atchinson Topeka & Santa Fe Railroad's Corwith Yard in Chicago's Brighton Park neighborhood, traveling southbound to Mc Cook Junction over the Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad, where it will interchange back on to Santa Fe home rails and travel eastbound to Corwith Yard.
