Northbound Elgin, Joliet & Eastern Railroad freight train. Crest Hill Illinois USA. September 2000., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo on location in Cresthill Illinois near Joliet, back in early September of 2000.
A local freight train from the former Elgin, Joliet & Eastern, is viewed passing the driveway railroad crossing, at the site of the Midwest Transit Bus Museum. This unofficial little bus museum, is located on private industrial storage property at Route # 53 and Caton Farm Road.
The E,J & E, was using these husky rebuilt EMD SD 9 locomotives from the Duluth, Misabe & Iron Range Railroad .
