A very rusty former Grand Trunk Western Tri Leval Auto Rack car in transit. River Grove Illinois USA. Sunday, July 24th, 2011.

I photographed this former Grand Trunk Western Railroad auto rack car in transit, aboard an eastbound Canadian Pacific freight train.

This rusty old relic from the former GTW and a few others like it, passed through the River Grove Metra commuter rail station that day.

For many years, I was a big fan of the former Grand Trunk Western Railroad. Although it was eventually bought out through merger by the parent company Canadian National Railroad around 1999, it was very nice just knowing that I can still find a few of these fallen flag GTW remnants rolling around today on any given freight train.
