Chicago's Brookfield Zoo. Brookfield Ilinois USA. September 2010., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Welcome aboard Eddie's Railfan Page from the city of Chicago Illinois USA.
I took this photo last year, during My September 2010 visit to Chicago's Brookfield Zoo.
Seen here, is the south entrance gate to the Brookfield Zoo. Prior to the end of streetcar operations in April of 1948, electric streetcars from the Chicago And West Towns Electric Railway, would stop to board and disembark passengers here, on the west Towns trolley line that operated between Cicero Illinois and La Grange Illinois.
Surviving 1924 built Chicago And West Towns electric streetcar # 141 under restoration at the Illinois Railway Museum in Union Illinois, was a regular car on this line, and stopped here at the south gate of Brookfield Zoo almost daily.
