Looking up at the locomotive cab of Central Illinois Railroad # 1206. Chicago Illinois. Friday, October 31st, 2008.

I took this photograph during a special company sponsored open house event for photographers, at the locomotive storage yard and office of the Central Illinois Railroad in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood.

EMD SW 1200 yard switcher # 1206 acquired second hand from the Belt Railway of Chicago, was recently repainted in to this 1950's era paint scheme honoring the pre 1970 Chicago, Burlington & Quincy Railroad that originally served the on line industries on their railroad line.

Yes, there is no mistaking those classic EMD locomotive switcher cabs from the past.
