Eastbound Grand Trunk Western Railroad freight train waiting to depart from the Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard. Chicago Illinois. January 1987., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph, way back in January of 1987.
A heavy all morning lake effect snowstorm had finally stopped falling on the city of Chicago Illinois by early afternoon on this winter Saturday afternoon. With the sun finally breaking through the clouds, we see an eastbound Grand Trunk Western freight train, preparing to depart from the Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard.
This photograph was taken facing west, from the top of the South Pulaski Road overpass bridge near Richard J. Daley College.
