I found this photo at My Link page Fallen Flags.Org, located to the right of Your computer screen.

Although this photo is listed as Forth Worth Texas in 1974, it reminded Me of seeing the Burlington Northern Clyde Yard as a kid back in the early 1970's. EMD SD 9 series locomotives coupled together in both the post 1970 Burlington Northern green and black color scheme, along with locomotives in the former 1960's era Chicago, Burlington & Quincy red and gray color scheme, could be seen back them from adjacent west 26th Street in west suburban Cicero Illinois. These locomotives provided the muscle for heavy switching movements at the BN Clyde Yard in those days.

Yes, this photo brought back some happy early 1970's era memories for Me.
