Hawthorne JCT. Chicago / Cicero IL. Aug 2011.

I photographed this digital live sound video recently, at Hawthorne Junction along the Chicago city limits, at the border of west suburban Cicero Illinois.

A southbound anadian Pacific Railroad transfer freight train, is viewed traveling over the Belt Railway of Chicago tracks enroute to the BRC Clearing Yard at southwest suburban Bedford Park Illinois.

Tucked several cars back in the consist, was an old EMD E 9 passenger diesel locomotive from the western U.S tourist railroad Arizona & Eastern, painted in the 1950's era Southern Pacific Railroad "Black Widow" freight color scheme.
