The CTA rapid transit yard in suburban Forest Park Illinois. March 17th 1985., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo way back in March of 1985.
We are riding aboard "The Snowflake Special", chartered CTA rapid transit train fantrip, wich was sponsored by The Illinois Railway museum in Union Illinois.
Our train is made up of 1950's era soon to be retired 550 and 6000 series lightweight rapid transit cars.
In the background, is the CTA Forest Park yard facility, just west of the Harlem Avenue CTA station at the end of todays CTA Green line.
