A former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad covered hopper car in transit. Chicago Illinois USA. July 2011.

I took this photograph back in July of 2011.

A westbound Canadian Pacific freight train passing the North Neva Avenue railroad crossing in Chicago Illinois, had a nice little surprise or two coupled on for all of the fans of the now fallen flag railroads of the past.

Although this 54 ft covered grain hopper car features Soo Line reporting marks which is now also a fallen flag railroad, the large and now faded logo from the former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad, is still showing after all of these years in service.
