Southbound Canadian National transfer train slowly rounding the southbound interchange curve. Hawthorne Junction. Chicago / Cicero Illinois. October 2008., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo one late afternoon, back in October of 2008.
A Canadian National Railroad transfer freight train is just departing from the CN's former Illinois Central Hawthorne Yard in west suburban Cicero Illinois, and is now slowly rounding the southbound interchange curve connection to the Belt Railway of Chicago tracks at Hawthorne Junction, located at the Chicago city limits.
