A Norfolk Southern transfer train waits for clearance at Cragin Junction. Chicago Illinois. June 2007.

I took this photograph after work one late afternoon, back in June of 2007.

We are on location at Cragin Junction, which is the north terminal for the Belt Railway of Chicago just a few city blocks east of the intersection of North Grand and Cicero Avenues in Chicago's Cragin neighborhood.

Waiting on the interchange curve connection, is a soon to be westbound Norfolk Southern freight train, waiting for several afternoon Metra rush hour commuter trains to pass by on the Canadian Pacific ex Milwaukee Road mainline.
