Southbound Norfolk Southern RR transfer train heading southbound over the Belt Railway of Chicago tracks. Photographed near West 63rd Street in Chicago Illinois. September 1987.

I took this photo way back in September of 1987.

A southbound Norfolk Southern freight train, is viewed traveling over the Belt Railway of Chicago tracks north of West 63rd Street near Chicago's Midway Airport.

Notice that the everyday railroad locomotives, did not have the now standard "Ditch Lights" on the pilot beam back in 1987. Just the main locomotive headlight.
