Eastbound Belt Railway of Chicago transfer train approaching Hayford Junction. Chicago Illinois. April 1987.

I took this photograph during a lovely springtime afternoon, way back in April of 1987.

We are on location at Hayford Junction, located at West 75th Street and South Central Park Avenue in Chicago's Ashburn neighborhood on the southwest side of the city.

An eastbound Belt Railway of Chicago transfer train being pulled by an old first generation EMD TR 4 Cow and Calf switcher team, approach the Grand Trunk Western crosstracks at Hayford Junction with several tons in tow.
