Central Illinos Railroad locomotives. Chicago Illinois USA. March 2011.

I took this photo back in March of 2011.

Two EMD SW 1200 yard switchers from the recently closed Central Illinois Railroad / ex BN Lumberyard district industrial branchline in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, sit silent behind a chain link fence around the locomotive storage yard, at West Cermak Road and South Canalport Avenue.

The BNSF Railway owns this industrial branchline. Across the street, I spotted a box car on the spur siding at the Colonial Brick Company. The BNSF Railway is proboubly switching this line as needed with these two left behind EMD switchers from the Central Illinois Railroad.
