Eastbound Union Pacific transfer train with a former Missouri Pacific unit, departing the Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard. Chicago Illinois. April 1987.

I took this photo, way back in April of 1987.

We are on location just east of the South Pulaski Road overpass bridge at what would approximately be West 75th Street near the Ford City Shopping Center and Richard J.Daley College.

An eastbound Union Pacific transfer freight train, is viewed departing from the east end of the Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard facility.

Notice the former Missouri Pacific locomotive on the head end of the train, acquired through merger by the Union Pacific in 1982.
