The Grand Trunk Western Railroad Elsdon Yard locomotive terminal.(Gone.) Chicago Illinois USA. October 1983.

I took this photo way back in October of 1983.

Seen here just north of West 51st Street and just west of South Kedzie Avenue at approximately West 49th Street, is the Grand Trunk Western Railroad's Elsdon locomotive terminal.

One locomotive acquired through merger from the Detroit, Toledo & Ironton Railroad in 1981 and two GTW locomotives, are viewed idling on the ready tracks during the final week of operation prior to abandonement of this facility.
