A northbound Norfolk Southern Railroad freight train. Morton Grove Illinois. Thursday, December 12th, 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph in bitterly cold outdoor conditions.
With plenty of beautiful bright sunshine, crystal clear blue sky, and some unfortunate windy and blustery cold temperatures in the upper teens, I snapped this photograph in Morton Grove Illinois.
A slow moving Norfolk Southern Railroad transfer freight train traveling over the former Milwaukee Road Railroad, is viewed passing through the Morton Grove Metra commuter rail station.
Although I was wearing gloves that day, my hands were still stinging me as was my face.
A sharp wind out of the west made this picture a challenge to take, but it was worth it all anyway.
Ah yes, nothing like Chicago winter railroading.
