I took this photo way back on Saturday, October 28th, 1989.
Another era was coming to an end for Chicago's Metra commuter trains on the Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad northwest line to Harvard Illinois, as the last three early 1950's era EMD model E 8 cab unit passenger locomotives were being retired.
This photo was taken during that last run fantrip charter, at the end of the line in the town of Harvard Illinois in Mc Henry County.
