We are on location at the Oakton Street railroad crossing, in northwest suburban Des Plaines Illinois near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport. A southbound Canadian Pacific freight train, has just cleared the railroad crossing. This train, is traveling over the Union Pacific Railroad's former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad freight only cut off line, that is often refered to as "The U.P Techny Line".
