Canadian National yard switching activity with fallen flag predecessorrailroad locomotives. Crawford Yard. Chicago Illinois. April 2007.

I took this photo after work one afternoon, back in early April of 2007.

The former Illinois Central / Chicago & Illinois Western ( I.C Subsidiary) owned Crawford Yard on the near southwest side of Chicago, is alive and well with a long tank car train being assembled.

The succesor railroad Canadian National, has closed Crawford Yard in 2011, and has removed the tracks. It was nice while it lasted.
