Eastbound Belt Railway of Chicago transfer train leaving Clearing Yard. Photographed at Hayford Junction. Chicago Illinois. January 1987., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo way back in January of 1987.
A heavy all morning snowstorm had struck the greater Chicagoland area on this day, and the snow had finally stopped falling by early afternoon when I arrived at Hayford Junction with My camera inhand.
