The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.o Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. Wednsday, March 23rd, 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
This miniature H.O Scale model of a short Burlington Northern Railroad covered hopper car, brought back happy memories of lineside railfanning during the 1980's for Me, in west suburban La Grange Illinois.
These hopper cars in the Cascade Green color scheme with the unique and slanted BN logo, were a common site coupled on to any Burlington Northern freight train arriving or departing from Chicago Illinois during the 1980's.
La Grange Illinois was a great place to photograph the Burlington Northern mainline back then, or even todays 1995 succesor railroad BNSF Railway.
