Grand Trunk Western Railroad visiting business car at Elsdon Yard. Chicago Illinois USA. August 1983.

I took this now historic photo way back in August of 1983.

I spotted this visiting Grand Trunk Western Railroad business car around sunset one evening, atthe GTW Elsdon Yard on West 51st Street near South St. Louis Avenue.

The sun was about to set on the old steam era GTW Elsdon Yard, as the facility would soon be closed for good in October of 1983.

This car was parked just south of adjacent West 51st Street, behind the GTW Elsdon Yard railroad police office near South St. Louis Avenue.
