Westbound Burlington Northern intermodal train. La Grange Illinois. January 1987., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo way back in January of 1987.
The village of west suburban La Grange Illinois, was always a favorite railfan hangout of Mine during the 1980's. Judging by this classic photo I took of the former Burlington Northern Railroad back then, is it any wonder why?
I tok this photo just west of the Brainard Avenue railroad crossing, on a cold and overcast Winter Saturday afternoon.
