Eastbound Canadian Pacific freight train. River Grove Illinois. December 1st, 2006., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photograph back on Friday, December 1st, 2006.
A heavy all morning lake effect snowstorm had finally stopped falling on the greater Chicagoland area by early afternoon that day, and soon I would be onlocation with my camera in hand, at the River Grove Illinois Metra commuter rail station.
In a scene right out of a Christmas holiday greeting card, an eastbound Canadian Pacific Railroad transfer freight train, passes the station with freshly fallen white snow on the ground at Thatcher Avenue.
