Chicago Terminal Railroad #900 finally breaks through the crazy truck/dozer/crane/etc traffic on a busy Friday at General Iron Industries in Lincoln Park, Chicago. In 2011, Chicago Terminal Railroad relies on passage through General Iron to reach its southern branch customers ... today it heading through to pick up a single empty lumber car.
It was interesting to watch this light locomotive wait, inch forward, wait, inch forward, until he finally had a shot through. Notice the Grand Am, in the Jaws of Death, just before going up the chute to be pummeled and recycled. Both operations are fascinating to watch.
