Westbound BNSF Railway double stack container train. Riverside Illinois. Sunday afternoon, April 4th 2010., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo on a Sunday afternoon, back in April of 2010.
The west suburban Village of Riverside Illinois was actually very quiet and quiete dormant on this very sunny Springtime afternoon. There was not much automobile traffic passing by the Riverside Metra commuter rail station, and few if any people were out taking a walk around town.
Soon, a headlight would appear out of the east, and a westbound BNSF Railway intermodal double stack container train would pass though the station. The distinctive sound of a heavy freight train being pulled by two modern heavy duty General Electric diesel locomotives, would soon rattle the silent afternoon at the station.
