Westbound U.P transfer train at Hayford JCT. Early Sept 1990.

I took this photo way back in early September of 1990.

A westbound Union Pacific Railroad transfer freight train, is viewed passing through Hayford Junction at West 75th Street and South Central Park Avenue, in Chicago's Ashburn neighborhood.

The lead locomotive, is wearing Missouri Pacific markings. The Union Pacific Railroad acquired the Missouri Pacific through merger in 1982, and actually painted a few of their locomotives with Missouri Pacific markings like this.

The large factory building in the background, is the Nabisco cookie factory at West 75th Street adjacent to the South Kedzie Avenue overpass bridge.
