A former Southern Railway Hi Cube box car in transit. Elmwood Park Illinois USA. Saturday, April 2nd, 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo recently, at the Elmwood Park Metra commuter rail station.
Pleasant surprises from railroading past, will sometimes appear on freight trains passing through Your area when You least expect them to.
This box car, is still wearing the colors and markings of the former Southern Railway. The Southern Railway and the Norfolk & Western Railroad, had merged in 1982 becoming todays Norfolk Southern Railroad.
