Westbound Amtrak train approaching Brighton junction. Chicago Illinois. April 1984.

I took this now historic photograph, way back in April of 1984.

In the years before the Chicago Transit Authority's orange line rapid transit line to Chicago's Midway Airport, a westbound Amtrak train is viewed approaching Chicago's Brighton Junction near South Archer and Western Avenues, on a lovely Springtime afternoon.

This scene is greatly altered today, as the CTA orange line passes this junction overhead.
