Westbound Norfolk Southern freight train departing from Cragin Junction. Chicago Illinois. July 2007.

I took this photo on a hot Summer day, back in July of 2007.

We are on location at the Metra Grand / Cicero Avenue commuter rail station in Chicago's Cragin neighborhood.

With the commuter train traffic out of the way for awhile on the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road west line to Elgin Illinois, a westbound Norfolk Southern intermodal train, is viewed departing from nearby Cragin Junction.

This train is now heading west over the former Milwaukee Road line, after interchanging from the Belt Railway of Chicago's north and south line at Cragin Junction.
