Eastbound CanadianNational switching train heading to nearby Crawford Yard. Hawthorne Junction. Chicago / Cicero Illinois. March 2007.

I took this photo at the Chicago city limits location known as Hawthorne Junction, back in late March of 2007.

An eastbound Canadian National train made up of tanker cars heading to the nearby ex Illinois Central Crawford Yard, crosses the Belt Railway of Chicago tracks. The hill to the
left of the photo, is the abandoned Bell Air Drive In Movie Theatre in west suburban Cicero Illinois.

In 2011, the Canadian National closed Crawford Yard and removed the tracks.
