A City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation garbage truck, and a westbound Metra commuter train at the North Kilbourn Avenue RR crossing. Chicago Illinois. April 2006., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo at the North Kilbourn Avenue railroad crossing in Chicago, back in April of 2006.
A northbound City of Chicago Department of Streets and Sanitation Volvo garbage truck, waits for a fast moving westbound Metra commuter train enroute to Elburn Illinois, pass the railroad crossing .
The City garbage truck, is heading either to the large nearby waste transfer station to dump it's load, or perhaps to the nearby city ward yard and garage maintenance facility one block north and east of here.
