Eastbound Norfolk Southern freight train departs the Belt Railway of Chicago's Clearing Yard, passing a snow shoveling track maintenance crew. Chicago Illinois. January 1987., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph way back in January of 1987.
An all morning Chicago snow storm has finally stopped falling, as a Belt Railway of Chicago track crew takes the time to shovel out a switch west of Hayford Junction.
An eastbound Norfolk Southern transfer train is now departing from the BRC's Clearing Yard, and is passing by the track crew on this winter afternoon.
