Amazing find and photo.

Wow! So that's what the end of the line looks like? What an incredible assortment of roadnames assembled to become.....disassembled.

Great historical picture. If you happen to find more from this location it would be great to see them.

That Metra unit sticks out like a sore thumb. It's screaming "buy me"

Cool shot!

Looks like you found that very place. :)
Posted by Evan Schilling on February 4, 2007 
Holy crap. Nice shot.

It's like a game of I-spy.............I couldn't find the Alaska GP38-2s Good shot though.

The second track from the left looks like it has the remains of a former River Terminal Railway ( Repuplic Steel Cleveland Oh ) unit,

To answer the of I-57........Nice shot Rob!
Posted by Rob Schreiner on February 4, 2007 
The Alaska unit is in the back, outside row, Yellow cab with the extra set of headlights on top... the headlights are the key clue.

Very nice shot.. I've passed there many of times myself and thought of taking that picture. I57 expressway, shoulder right by Spaulding ave. Too many IL state police around that area for me thought , It would be just my luck!

Swapmeet for modellers working in 12 inches to 1 foot!

For those who couldnt find them, the ARR GP38-2s are all the way in the back. Find the F40C, then behind that are two (apparently?) BNSF switchers, the ARR is behind them. Amazing, amazing shot! Would be a wonderful modeling project

That's quite a bone yard! Nice find!

Rob, great shot! Not sure how you pulled this off, but I assume a fortunate traffic jam? Well done.

Great picture. I spent many a shift at Dallas yard on these two Katy geeps. Kinda like the Dallas Yard itself, you cant hardly find it anymore.

Notice the NS C39-8 hiding on the other side of the building.

After reading through the numerous comments and seeing how each post points out the different locomotives....this photo makes me think of a "where's waldo" photograph. Too many treasures.

Sad part to know about this wonderful photo is the F40C has been scrapped this past year along with many other of these units as a "Clean-Up" project. The MKT 101 and 104 appeared to have nose mounted numberboards but have since been replaced. I spot the WC 7592, the second unit behind the NS C39-8 as well. Great Shot!!

Thats definately a River Terminal switcher 2nd from left. Wonder the origins of the f unit. Every time you look at the photo you find something new.

Quite an asortment of locomotives.
