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.
Looking west from the top of the South Pulaski Road overpass bridge near West 76th Street, we see a Grand Trunk Western freight train waiting for clearance, to depart from the Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard.
It had snowed all morning, and had finally stopped by early afternoon that day.
The fresh white snow made for some nice photographs of Chicago winter railroading.
