Burlington Northern commuter train approaching the La Grange Road commuter rail station. La Grange Illinois. February 1985., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
La Grange Illinois has always been one of my favorite towns I enjoy visiting in the greater Chicagoland area.
Being a railfan myself, there was always a fun time to be had taking 35mm pictures lineside on the Burlington Northern Railroad's three track Chicago to Aurora "Racetrack" commuter mainline.
I took this photograph on a dry but overcast winter afternoon, way back in february of 1985. (Has it been that long ago already?)
A westbound Burlington Northern / early Metra local commuter train enroute to Aurora Illinois, is viewed arriving at the BN's La Grange Road Metra / Amtrak passenger station in downtown La Grange Illinois.
Those once everyday standard lineside telephone poles to the left of the train, have long since disappeared from this railroad mainline.
