The Rock Island lives! Tinley Park Illinois. June 2008., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo one summer afternoon, back in June of 2008.
True, the former Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific Railroad went out of business after several bankruptcies on March 31st, 1980. However...a few remnants of the former Rock Island can still be found on display if one looks carefully enough.
This former Rock Island steel cupola caboose, is on display along the east side of 80th Avenue between 167th and 171st Streets, in south suburban Tinley Park Illinois.
