The Grand Trunk western Railroad Elsdon Yard locomotive terminal. ( Gone.) Chicago Illinois USA. October 1983., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph way back in October of 1983.
The Grand Trunk Western Railroad was operating their Elsdon Yard and locomotive terminal at West 49th Street and South Kedzie Avenue, for the final week prior to abandonement, and relocation to the Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard in Bedford Park Illinois.
This trio of GTW and ex D,T & I EMD roadswitchers, are proboubly idling on the Elsdon ready tracks for the final time.
