The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. May 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo during a May 2011 visit to The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
I was only 10 years old when the Chessie System Railroad began operations in the year of 1972.
I could remember seeing their freight trains operating on the southside of Chicago during the 1970's and into the mid 1980's. Many times I would see Chessie System transfer trains enroute to or from the huge Belt Railway of Chicago Clearing Yard, near Chicago's Midway Airport.
This train brought back some happy southside Chicago railfan memories for Me in H.O Scale. Very nice.
