Three EMD E-8 passenger locomotives performing a photo runby near Harvard Illinois. Photographed during the C&NW /Metra EMD E-8 Last Run fantrip from Chicago to Harvard Illinois., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph way back in late October of 1989.
An era is ending on the former Chicago & Northwestern Railroad commuter lines, as the RTA's last three early 1950's era EMD E 8 streamlined passenger diesel locomotives, are officially being retired from Chicago commuter train operations.
This photo runby, was photographed at Ridgefield Illinois near the town of Harvard.
