A former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad covered hopper car passing through the Morton Grove Metra commuter rail station. Morton Grove Illinois. Thursday, December 12th, 2013.

I took this photograph one day last month during my my lunch break.

Fallen flag railroads of the past and their sometimes "Not yet repainted" equipment, are wherever you may find it.

The former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad was bought out through merger during the 1990's by the Union Pacific Railroad. This former C & N,W covered hopper, is an example of one of those many railroad paint shop projects on back order, many years after the merger.
