Westbound BNSF Railway empty unit coal train passing underneath the Congress Park overhead block signal bridge at the Prairie Avenue railroad crossing. Brookfield Illinois. December 2006., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo one morning back in December of 2006.
With bright sunshine and unseasonabally mild outdoor temperatures in the low 50's, who could ask for a nicer morning to do some late year railfanning?
We are looking west from the Prairie Avenue railroad crossing in west suburban Brookfield Illinois.
An empty westbound BNSF Railway unit coal train, is viewed departing the greater Chicagoland area, and heading back to the coal strip mines in the State of Wyoming.
